Dear St. Clare Families,
Thank you for providing me with the opportunity to serve as your DRE for over 9 years.
I am taking fond memories of the many children and teens I have taught over the years.
My spiritual life was enriched with each family retreat, parent formation session and the communal celebration many of you participated in over the years.
I am grateful for the AMAZING St. Clare catechists who give of themselves year after year in developing lessons for the children and teens.
You all inspire me! I hope that our new families in the RE programs will take advantage of the wonderful events that the catechists have planned for this year.
Don't miss the chance to attend FAMILY SUNDAYS (1st Sunday of the month at 9am Mass). They have wonderful activities planned for your family and the door to fellowship is wide open.
I also invite all the women of St. Clare to join me on November 4th for our 1st SCV Women's Spiritual Day. Take a day for yourself...let's share, pray and break bread together at the beautiful Sand Canyon Country Club! See details in the INSPIRED flier below.
Welcome Nancy Arriaga as the new Interim DRE! Nancy is eager to meet you all and work with your family.
First Family Sunday is OCTOBER 1st - Join RE families in fellowship and in prayer to our Blessed Mother.
