6th Sunday of Easter
May 9 -  May 15

        The readings this Sunday teach us that God’s love for us takes precedence over our love for him, and that his choice of us takes precedence over our choice for him. It is God’s choice of a human life that gives it value, not our choice. It is God’s decision to entrust us to the care of each other that creates the responsibilities we have toward human life, not the choice we make to be responsible for them. Giving life, moreover, is the very revelation of God’s love. “In this way the love of God was revealed to us: God sent his only Son into the world so that we might have life through him”. The command given to us to love, therefore, is a command both to receive and give the kind of love God shows.

Good News
Over the next few months, we'll be slowly introducing a new musical setting of the Mass Ordinary at Saint Clare Masses. The Mass Ordinary are texts of the Mass, spoken or sung by the whole congregation, that don't change from Sunday to Sunday. Things like the Gloria, Holy Holy Holy, and Lamb of God are all examples of the Ordinary, and since the words always stay the same, they present a wonderful opportunity for all of us, the Body of Christ, to sing the Mass (not just sing at Mass, but sing the Mass itself!)

Our new musical settings come from several different composers, and will be introduced piece by piece so that we can slowly learn them together. Beginning this weekend, we'll begin with the new trifold Amen, which you can listen and practice along too by clicking the video below. 
Please know that the whole staff of Saint Clare of Assisi is praying for YOU! 
We miss seeing each and every one of you, and can't wait to be reunited in person again.
If we can be of service in any way during these stressful times, please don't hesitate to reach out to us via phone, zoom, or email.
