2 LETTER FROM THE PASTOR Fr. Paul Seaman Dear Friends of Saint Clement, I write to you as the new kid on the block. Having just arrived this July, I am awestruck by the breadth of ministry, passion, and commitment I see from the clergy, staff, and the folks in the pews. Saint Clement is all about the business of sharing the Gospel! In word and sacrament, we come before the glorious presence of God. In the community gathered, we make Christ present to each other, just as He is truly present to us in the Eucharist. Following men such as Msgr. Hynes, Father Simpson, and Father Hickey is an honor. Father Rex Pillai and Father Peter Wojcik are companions in ministry for whom I have deep respect. As they worked so hard to establish the five Anchors as guideposts for the mission of the parish, so we hear and answer the call to stewardship in all its forms. In a particular way, I wish to express the gratitude of the whole parish to Christina Bax and Cathy Madayag for their dedicated work as our pastoral associate and assistant to the pastor, respectively. Christina is moving on to a new position in Dallas, Texas and Cathy plans to see the world in retirement! God s blessings to both of these wonderful women. I take my responsibility as an accountable steward very seriously. Every person who gives of their time, talent, and resources has a right to know those gifts are being used conscientiously and with care. As a pastor new to Saint Clement, among my highest priorities is to establish a mutual trust. I must trust that you will support the parish as best as possible. Likewise, you must feel secure in your trust that the staff and I will carefully steward your generosity. I am confident that trust will be fruitful. The projects undertaken at Saint Clement through To Teach Who Christ Is have been monumental. We have not been able to complete all we had hoped. So the work goes on in many ways. As we have been blessed, so we are called to be a blessing to others, especially those who go without. I am stunned and humbled looking over the many ministries and activities of our parish. How many lives are touched! I look forward to the many blessings God will shower upon us. Thank you for your enthusiastic stewardship of Saint Clement! Gratefully, Fr. Paul G. Seaman Pastor OUR VISION A Catholic Community Striving for Deeper Holiness, Greater Communion and Wider Service

3 PRAY The spirit of Saint Clement reeled us in like Christ s fishermen. We belonged, and we had found a place to pray. I joined a small faith group in 2009, and we still meet to this day, as dear friends. -Carlotta Rinke In prayer we purposefully seek to be in relationship with God, our loving creator, who has gifted our lives in many ways. As Christian stewards, we respond in thanksgiving by deliberately giving back to God the gift of our time in prayer, so as to foster our relationship with God as individuals and as a community. SERVE Becoming a Catechist is definitely one of the best decisions I ve made! Each week the children come with enthusiasm, open minds, and amazing questions. I learn from them every class. -Kim Marks Each week, our sharing in the Eucharist moves us to greater reflection about the role our faith plays in the lives of others. We are called to enter into relationship through service, sharing our gifts with a world in need.

4 GIVE Clement Commits Since 2003, Saint Clement Parish has been deepening its understanding of being a stewardship parish. The practical spirituality of stewardship is based in the scriptures. Spiritually, this means that each person in the parish is encouraged to spend time understanding how all that they have is a gift from God and that each person is uniquely gifted. This leads to the next step of prayerfully deciding how those many gifts will be given back to God. This giving back is sacrificial because individually our time, talent, and treasure are limited resources. Practically, it means that as a parish we make a commitment to give of our first fruits to needs beyond our parish. We honor this commitment through Clement Commits, which donates 10% each fiscal year from our parish collections. The Clement Commits committee, which includes our pastor, two parish staff, and five parishioners, reviews reports of how recipient funds are used and evaluates requests annually. In , Clement Commits donations totaled $234,154 allowing us to allocate $169,529 to community needs and $64,625 to Archdiocesan special collections. We also distributed an additional $2,135 as the Clement Commits share of our Community of Shepherds Fund. A total of 26 organizations were supported. To learn more about Clement Commits, go to clement.org/ clementcommits. Sunday Giving Commitment As a parish community, we embrace a practical spirituality of stewardship through three of our five parish anchors pray, serve and give. Part of what it means to give is to contribute to the financial lifeblood of our parish the Sunday Giving Commitment. Pledging is a tangible expression of gratitude for God s role in your life, as well as the part the church has played in deepening your spiritual life. It is also the principal source of funds to support property operating costs, needs of our programs, and services of the parish. Financial support through the Sunday Giving Commitment also funds our Clement Commits program. We strive to be good stewards of the resources entrusted to us by our generous parishioners. For more information or to make a pledge/donation, go to clement.org/give. Capital Campaign We reached the three-year anniversary of our Capital Campaign in May of 2017 and celebrated with the grand opening of the Clement Ministry Center on June 25. It was a warm and sunny day to bless our beautiful new space, which features a welcoming entrance and a formal reception area with an accessible commercial elevator to serve the main floors of the Clement Ministry Center and the church building. As of the fiscal year-end, we are wrapping up the major projects and are beginning to focus on the final payments on the outstanding contracts. We still need the help of all parishioners with outstanding pledge balances to ensure the finances of the campaign are in balance. If you d like to fulfill your pledge or make a new donation, please contact our parish office.

6 LEARN The thing I love most about Saint Clement is how the events and opportunities really aim to nurture the whole person. Programs like Strengths for the Journey are so wonderful because they have given me opportunities to grow and understand myself better as a unique creation of God, and in return I can pray, serve, and give in ways that are more meaningful to me. -Liz Clark Faith is a gift from God. As stewards of this gift, we are called to deepen our understanding of the Faith and to share it with the next generation. By providing opportunities for life-long learning, our community has sought to form, strengthen, and send forth children, teens, and adults as committed disciples of Christ. Belonging leads to believing. We are meant to live the Christian life in community with others we are created to belong with and for one another. Saint Clement offers a wide variety of opportunities for us to pray, serve, give, and learn together, encouraging our sense of belonging. BELONG Whether preparing to get married, embarking on Jade s Catholic confirmation, baptizing our two children, mourning the loss of a parent, or celebrating our son s First Communion to the more everyday faith experiences the church, the people, the community, and now the school Saint Clement has been there every step of the way. -Mary Newburn
