Kairos is a retreat offered to high school juniors and seniors through the combined efforts of St. Cletus, St. Francis Xavier, and St. John of the Cross parishes. The retreat is offered three times each calendar year. Kairos is a 4-day retreat that allows you to build new friendships as well as to deepen current relationships, and to learn more about yourself and your connection with God, while having an unforgettable experience.

The Holy Name Society promotes respect for the most Holy Name of God, faith in the Catholic Church and its teaching authority, and loyal respect to both our civil and religious responsibilities.
Our chapter of Holy Name Society began when the parish was established in October 1951. Our chapter is a branch of a world-wide fraternity of the church, which began more than 700 years ago. In its first seven centuries, the Society has helped to foster the salvation of souls. Membership in the Society can offer faith-filled men a chance to serve with an organization that has become the voice of Catholic men, — and potentially, enrich their lives.
HNS sponsors a Thanksgiving turkey raffle, a Christmas dinner party, a Pancake Breakfast in springtime, and a Past Presidents’ Dinner in May. The HNS group often helps support other activities of the parish such as the Fourth of July veteran’s Mass and Food Pantry programs, as well as other organizations such as the Mission Ladies and the Ministry of Care.
The Compassionate Care Ministry helps to cope with the lost of a loved on. Hear how the ministry touches those in their time of need:
“During a time like this we realize how much our family and friends really mean to us. Your expression of sympathy will always be remembered. Dear Jerry: Thank you so much for your very nice compassionate service at Hallowell & James for our family. We really appreciated it.”
“Dear St. Cletus Compassionate Care Ministry, I write this note with great appreciation for your lovely sympathy card and beautiful basket you prepared for myself and my little ones. I feel truly humbled and greatly blessed by all the support and generosity. Please know that your prayers and warm thoughts are carrying me day by day.”
If you had a chance to visit the Ministry Fair in February, you no doubt saw how many different ministries make up our parish.
