With incredible success Saint Clement hosted the First Annual Christmas Dinner for the Homeless on Dec. 29 in the school cafeteria. The dinner had over 100 of our friends join us for turkey, ham, dressing, mashed potatoes, corn, macaroni and cheese, cranberries and numerous desserts. The food was prepared and served by 180 parishioners who volunteered their time throughout the preparations and night of the dinner¬, including homemade desserts from parishioners.
As part of our ongoing engagement process, we have come to realize the importance of parishioners sharing their personal stories of how they have connected with Saint Clement as an important factor in their lives. As a feature twice a month, we share the stories and reflections of our engaged parishioners who are living a stewardship life of prayer, service, and giving. This week we hear from Joseph M. Siciliano.
