COVID-19 and Reopening Updates

Below is a collection of helpful information and resources to help with your questions as the St. Clarence community works to reopen.

Latest on Parish Reopening

Consistent with the Diocesan plan we resumed daily mass on Monday,  May 25 at 8:30 a.m.  All masses will be held in the main church. Our weekend masses began on Pentecost Sunday, May 30-31. For the time being we will maintain our regular weekend schedule of masses as follows: Saturday 4:30 p.m. and Sunday at 8:00 a.m., 10:00 a.m. and 12 noon. We will re-evaluate these mass times as we move forward in our reopening journey.

Mass will look different in order to meet the safety requirements of the State of Ohio and the Diocese of Cleveland.
