We have suspended weekly gatherings due to concerns over the Coronavirus epidemic. While we wait for the crisis to pass, Saint Clare Pastoral Center has joined forces with the First Christian Church of Mount Vernon in providing an online ecumenical service each Sunday on Zoom.
Our most recent service can be viewed by clicking [here]. Our prayers are with you during these uncertain times. Until we can gather together once again, please stay informed, stay safe, stay well, and may God bless us all.
Don't just Come to church ...
... Become the church!
Rev. Liz and I would like to welcome you to the Saint Clare Pastoral Center website. We are part of the Ecumenical Catholic Communion* (ECC), the largest independent Catholic jurisdiction in the United States, and a member of the National Council of Churches. Our denomination traces its history through the European Old Catholic Churches who came together in opposition to the declaration of papal infallibility established by the First Vatican Council (1869-70). Our mission is to offer valid sacraments to all those seeking a faith community whose beliefs are grounded in the traditions of the early Christian church while maintaining the basic integrity of the Catholic liturgy. We meet each Sunday in space provided by the First Christian Church of Mount Vernon, located at 900 Skagit Street. Mass begins at 10:30 am.

Peace and Blessings ... Rev. Jack & Rev. Liz
