How We Got Here
Starting more than twelve years ago, Saint Cletus began discussing the needs for more meeting space, a large gathering area for the parish, and overall improvements to the campus. After enlisting the services of various professional consultants, Saint Cletus was able to determine the structural needs of the campus and the desires of our parishioners. Comprised of more than 2,700 families and educating more than 400 children, our Parish is a vibrant, active and growing faith community. Indeed, the time has come to expand our horizons and begin Living our Faith, Building our Future.
