Saint Clement Mary Hofbauer School of Religion
With the guidance of the Holy Spirit always before us, we the catechists of Saint Clement Mary Hofbauer Parish, journey with families in learning and growing in the knowledge of Godís love. Together with our Church community and through the teachings of Jesus we work to bring about the kingdom of God here on earth through a ministry of learning and compassion.
