United in tradition and based on the Gospel of Our Lord Jesus Christ, we are the Roman
Catholic Community of Saint Clare Church in Essex. As a parish family, we accept the call of Jesus to serve Him and one another by:
• Striving to spread the Gospel message through full and active participation in worship, and through the faith formation of children to adults;
• Encouraging each other in love to become the person the Lord has called each of us to be, particularly through ongoing evangelization and service;
• Providing opportunities which foster communication, cooperation and fellowship for all;
• Reaching out to those who are in need by supporting their physical, emotional and spiritual wellbeing; and
• Ensuring the future of our parish through our stewardship efforts, including prudently handling ﬁnances, efﬁciently managing staff and volunteer resources, and maintaining safe, accessible and attractive facilities.
