Thank you to all who participated in the 4th of July Independence Day Mass and afterwards, the reception in the parish center. This unique celebration, which began in 1976 (yes, 46 years ago!) was celebrated by our Bishop, the Most Reverend Kevin Birmingham and honored parishioner Rod Bradford who received the Fr. Charles Gallagher Award for Service to Church and Country. With so many veterans present, we gathered as a family to salute all who have so selflessly served and continue to serve our great nation. The mass, which included the all-volunteer band who returned after a brief hiatus due to the covid pandemic, was a great tribute to the patriotic climate which exists at our parish. St. Cletus is proud to continue this tradition!
