Dear Saint Clement parishioners,
Greetings and peace in Christ, the Only Savior of the world. Please be assured of my prayers for you and your families every day, that we all grow stronger in living the virtues of faith, hope and love in our words and deeds.
With the Wisconsin Supreme Court decision this past Wednesday to strike down the extended restrictions set by our governor, we now await Bishop Donald J. Hying’s instructions for resuming the celebration of public Masses. We hope to have the instructions by next week. I’m looking forward to when we can all be together again in church for the celebration of Holy Mass as a parish family!
In the meantime, please know that I will continue to offer private Masses every day, praying for our intentions, while the church continues to remain open 24-7 for prayer. And I will continue to hear Confessions on Fridays and Saturdays. Let’s continue to pray for everyone to get back to their livelihoods, and for the safe, prudent and reasonable opening of all businesses, and for God’s healing, peace, strength and courage for us all, trusting in His Divine providence.
With peace and prayers in Christ,
Jesus Christ, have mercy on us.
Mary, Mother of Perpetual Help, pray for us.
Saint Joseph, pray for us.
Saint Clement and Saint Raphael, pray for us.
