Dear Sisters and Brothers in Christ,
Welcome to the website of St. Clare of Assisi, a Roman Catholic Church in Houston, Texas.
We give witness of our faith in Jesus Christ through joyful worship, the formation of young people and adults, and service to our South Harris County community. St. Clare of Assisi’s mission is to:
Be strengthened by Christ in the Eucharist and sacramental grace.
Embrace life in the Holy Spirit
Recognize the presence of Christ in all.
Serve through prayer, works, and compassion
Nourish lifelong spiritual journeys
Be responsible stewards of the gifts given by God.
I hope this site will help you get to know us better and, in so doing, discover something new about the Good News Jesus shares with the world.
St. Clare of Assisi has an exceptional Pre-K through Grade 8 School where we educate the mind, heart, and spirit of our young people through the personal relationships of parent, child, and educator. The curriculum is tied intimately with the Church, and we communicate the full, authentic Catholic faith.
St. Clare has a comprehensive catechetical program from Pre-K, Elementary, and family faith formation, RCIA, youth ministries, and many Adult Faith Formation classes.
Our Elementary formation is based on the model of Catechesis of the Good Shepherd. The Montessori method is utilized to joyfully introduce the child to Jesus and the teaching of the Church. Junior High uses the C4 program. C4 (Catechesis, Community, Contemplation and Christians in Action) is designed to meet the educational, spiritual, emotional, and social needs of young adolescents. High School uses a few different programs – Thrive, Leadership and Confirmation Preparation. These high school programs have the power to transform teens, transform parishes, and transform culture. Teens are always welcomed and encouraged to bring their friends to any of the middle school or high school ministries.
Our parish groups and ministries offer a way for you and your family to connect to the parish, to serve others, and to grow in Spirit. I pray that you will join us as we worship, serve and grow in our love of Jesus Christ and each other as St. Clare said “Love God, serve God: everything is in that.”
Your brother in Christ,
Fr. Vincent Vuong-Quoc Nguyen
