Our Parish Goal: $1,100,000
St. Clement's parish is a strong and energetic faith-filled community. Thanks to our parishioners we run many programs and grow together as a family of faith.
Much has been accomplished since our church was consecrated in 1970. In 1994 we were blessed with a chapel of perpetual adoration.
In 2003 we installed air conditioning at a cost of $110,000. We constructed a barrier-free washroom on the main floor and upgraded the hall washrooms at a cost of $105,000.
The archdiocese provided a loan of $551,000 in 2006 for the purchase of a three bedroom bungalow for use as a rectory and conversion of the existing rectory for use as meeting rooms and additional office space.
Our parish community rose to the occasion, and fundraised $900,000 to cover the cost of the washrooms, the rectory, and elevator. Unfortunately, the elevator project had to be postponed as the church roof developed serious leaks and had to be replaced in 2009. This required $535,000.
The current parish debt is $436,000. The archdiocese has agreed to provide additional financing of up to $250,000 towards the elevator project. Our parish's share of the campaign will be entirely applied towards retiring our debt. With your generosity we will then face the future debt free.
We look forward to this exciting phase of our parish and archdiocese, remembering that we are family - brothers and sisters in Christ!
