That Man Is You! (TMIY)

We would like to invite every male who is 18 years or older to participate in the “That Man is You” (TMIY) program.  TMIY is a program focused on helping Catholic men to grow in faith and make new friends.  During each meeting we will watch a 30 minute spiritual video, followed by informal group discussions that reflect on the message of the video.  TMIY meetings will begin on Wednesday, 9/13 at 7:00 PM, or Thursday, 9/14 at 6:00AM.  The meetings will be held in the coffee shop, and will last for 13 weeks.   If you have any questions about the program, please feel free to contact Eric Tonissen (tonissen@sbcglobal.net), John Sonnhalter (jsonnhalter@sonnhalter.com), or the TMIY leadership team (stclarencemen@gmail.com).  We hope you will join us in attending this wonderful program.

Helping Hands

For the month of August, we will be helping with the parish-wide service day on the 5th at 9:00am. It will be a day of assisting parishioners and working on the parish

grounds.

The Helping Hands Ministry was established with the purpose of helping families and friends of St. Clarence with tasks, chores, and minor repairs/remodeling at their home, apartment, or condo – tasks those could otherwise not have the financial or physical ability to accomplish on their own. These tasks can be anything from cleaning windows, putting on storm doors, painting, yard work, and cleaning gutters to light plumbing and structural repairs. Helping Hands does not charge a fee for this labor. However, we ask for payment for materials and supplies. Monies received will be used for current funding or future projects. Helping Hands– 2nd Saturday of each month

Contact Joe Kraft (kraft.joseph@yahoo.com) for information on being a member of Helping Hands. Volunteers can participate as often or seldom as they want.
