Parish Life at St Clare's

The Christian vocation is essentially a call to be a disciple of Jesus. God wants us to cherish and serve others and contribute to the overall welfare of our faith community. God calls us all to serve as He served – to use the talents that He has given each of us for the benefit of His glory and that of His whole world.

John 15

No longer shall I call you servants, for a servant knows not what his master does. Now I shall call you friends, for I have revealed to you all that I have heard from my Father.

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.

John 6:57-58

As the living Father sent Me, and I live because of the Father, so he who eats Me, he also will live because of Me.

This is the bread which came down out of heaven; not as the fathers ate and died; he who eats this bread will live forever.
