CATHOLIC CHARITIES NEWS

The economic impact of the pandemic has increased the number of  homeless families. Catholic Charities provides assistance to people in Monmouth County who have lost their homes with food, transitional housing, job skills, and budgeting training. We also provide drug addiction services, domestic violence and immigration services. For assistance call 732-922-0400.  The isolation caused by Covid-19 has resulted in a dramatic increase in drug addiction.  If you know of a parishioner needing addiction assistance, please contact us at  http://www.catholiccharitiestrenton.org  or call 800-360-7711.  The link for the video regarding drug addiction is:   Catholic Charities on Drug Addiction

Recently, we have seen a rise in Phishing Calls supposedly by Father Tom asking for donations.  Please know that these calls are from individuals not connected with the parish or the diocese.  If you receive one, just note it and report it via Flocknote to St. Clement’s so we can present it to the authorities.

EVERY PENNY COUNTS

For those that are able, please remember your church during this most difficult time. It would be greatly appreciated if you could either mail in your weekly contribution if you are not attending mass, or join our online giving program (information on this program is included in this website).  Please note – creating a Parish Giving  account does not at the same time register you into the parish.  Recently some people have assumed that Parish Giving made them parishioners.  It takes the completion of our registration form to become a parishioner.  That form is also on our website.  Many thanks to those that are supporting this parish.
