St Clare of Assisi is a young parish – just 17 years old in 2016. We began under the guidance of Father Craig Scott and he continues to lead us today together with our patron Saint, St Clare of Assisi. St Clare’s name means bright, clear and brilliant – and she is the brilliant light that guides our parish.
Parishioners of St Clare’s are from a diverse mix of ethnic backgrounds. We have approximately 1081 registered families where English is the dominant language spoken at home but there are 21 different languages also spoken.
St Clare is a welcoming parish and encourages families with small children to participate in all of our masses.
St Clare’s offers a wide range of music styles to suit all ages and tastes.
Our goal as a parish is to be the bright light that guides all of our parishioners to be true disciples of Christ.
On the first day of the week, when we were gathered together to break bread, Paul began talking to them, intending to leave the next day, and he prolonged his message until midnight.
“That when two or more are gathered in my name, there will I be also.”
Let us consider how to stimulate one another to love and good deeds, not forsaking our own assembling together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another; and all the more as you see the day drawing near.
