This congregation is blessed with parishioners of all ages, and there are many opportunities to be together.
Children and youth who would like to take part in the important task of assisting with the worship services should contact Rector Bruce. Acolytes assist in worship through a variety of functions, such as carrying the processional cross, lighting candles, holding the Gospel book, holding candles, assisting the priest with tasks at the altar, and many other tasks. This program is open to all youth — third grade through college.
worship flows smoothly thanks to the ministry of our dedicated ushers. Ushers welcome folks to worship, assist newcomers, collect the offering, and assist the flow to the Eucharist. We are always looking to increase our pool of ushers. Please reach out to Sarah at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Altar Guild
Our Altar Guild prepares the sanctuary for all services. Their dedicated work is done under the direction of the Rector and anyone interested in service is asked to speak with him.
St. Mary’s Guild
The St. Mary’s Guild is the oldest continuously functioning lay-led organization at St. Clement’s. This women’s group was formed in 1962 for the sole purpose of raising funds for capital expenses not covered by the general church budget. Our members gather monthly to discuss and plan ways to help keep our lovely sanctuary, hall, and grounds attractive and in good working order. They meet the third Wednesday of the month at 7:30 PM. All women of the parish are welcome!
