Approaching Year End
The Church’s Liturgical Year will come to an end next Sunday, November 23rd. This final Sunday is a festive occasion dedicated to Christ the King. Together we commit our minds and hearts to Jesus our Sovereign Lord and ask for the grace to remain faithful in everything we do.
Feast of St. Clement [Nov 23]
Next Sunday, Solemnity of Christ the King, is also the feast day of our Patron, St. Clement of Rome. Clement was the fourth Pope, third after St. Peter. He was exiled for his faith to hard labour in the salt mines and then martyred. Tradition tells us that he was tied to an anchor and thrown over the side of a boat into the sea. You will find a statue of St. Clement in the front vestibule, a beautiful oil painting in the church and a stained glass image at the roof level. St. Clement, pray for us!
