Sunday Services Suspended

Because of Governor Whitmer’s recent advisory urging people to avoid large gatherings to prevent the further spread of COVID-19, regular worship services, events, meetings and rehearsals have been temporarily suspended until further notice.

Additional Outdoor Eucharist Services

Additional Outdoor Eucharist Services

On September 26 and October 3, we will hold 4 p.m. outdoor Eucharist services on the grounds at St. Clare’s. Attendance will be limited to 25 people at each service, and we would like to give priority to people who did not attend our September 17 service. Please sign up for one of the services here. Add your name to the waiting list if the service you wish to attend is full. Note carefully the following protocols that will be in place.

  • Please go directly to & from your car without lingering to chat with others (as much as we all would love to do so!). 
  • MASKS must be worn!
  • As you arrive, households will be assigned to a ‘circle’ and are expected to remain there during the entire service (Rev. Maryjane will deliver communion to each circle). 
  • Bring blankets and/or chairs to sit on.
  • Mosquitoes are a distinct possibility, so bug spray might be a good idea!
  • We have not scheduled a rain date – if the weather is threatening, the service will be cancelled and you will be notified.

While we are very excited to offer this event, we understand that not everyone will be able to attend, and that many of you are not ready to engage in person.  Please know that Zoom services/recordings will continue.

Blessing of the Animals

Blessing of the Animals

On Sunday, October 4, our Morning Prayer service will include a special blessing of the animals in the spirit of St. Francis of Assisi. All of God’s creatures are welcome to join us for Morning Prayer!

That afternoon, you can bring your pet(s) to St. Clare’s at 2 p.m. for a drive-through blessing. Pastor Maryjane will be there and she will bless your pet(s) while you remain in your vehicle. Please wear a mask.

Virtual Tailgate

Virtual Tailgate

Mark your Calendars! On October 10, from noon to 2 p.m., there will be a virtual Campus Ministry Fundraising Diocesan Wide Tailgate between Michigan and MSU. The team who gets the most pledges wins the game. So, my friends, get your game day gear ready and your tailgate recipes brewing.  If you know any MI/MSU alums please invite them too. I am also looking for musically interested people who want to play an instrument before the kick off and at half time. Please email me at kellyscheu99@gmail.com if interested. More details coming your way soon….
