Parish Life at St Clare's

The prayer chain is a way for people to gain assistance in prayer for serious problems. Most prayer chains are for a continuous 24 hour period. Your commitment (from the comfort of your own home) would be one hour of dedicated time spent in prayerful meditation in any form from saying the rosary to reading the bible to formal prayers, to singing – whatever way that you can honor God.

The prayer chain at St. Clare’s is currently looking for more parishioners – especially people that can commit to the hours from midnight to 6:00 a.m. Prayer is a way for each of us to reach out of ourselves for the sake of another – to act on God’s command to love one another. Please think about joining. Contact Gillian at 604-375-5566 or queenans@gmail.com

Mark 10:43-45

But it is not this way among you, but whoever wishes to become great among you shall be your servant; and whoever wishes to be first among you shall be slave of all.

For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life a ransom for many.

St. Teresa of Avila

Christ has no body now on earth but yours, no hands but yours, no feet but yours; yours are the eyes through which to look at Christ’s compassion to the world, yours are the feet with which He is to go about doing good, and yours are the hands with which He is to bless us now.

Thessalonians 5:12-13

We ask you, brothers, to respect those who are laboring among you and who are over you in the Lord and who admonish you, and to show esteem for them with special love on account of their work. Be at peace among yourselves.
