In accord with St. Clare, our patron saint, this community strives:
• To respond to her challenge to be lovers of our souls and the souls of all others.
• To always be eager to observe what we have promised the Lord through our profession of faith.
• To accomplish all of this in the presence of the Lord.
St. Clare Catholic Church opened its doors in 1977 as a mission of Our Lady of Perpetual Help in Newhall. Soon we were growing out of our church and in response we built our current church building in 1988. In 1995 construction began on our Mission Church, Bl. Kateri in the Saugus area of Santa Clarita. Bl. Kateri now, a parish in its own right, also continues to grow.
In 2007 St. Clare added two new buildings to accommodate our need for more meeting and gathering space. The new buildings also house our Parish Library. We thank God for the ministries which serve our Hispanic and Filipino population, The Knights of Columbus, our Religious Education Programs, the Bereavement Ministry, our Lectors, Eucharistic Ministers, Ushers, our Sunday Morning Coffee and Doughnuts Crews, our Tuesday/Thursday Senior Group, and all of our Volunteers who breathe life into St. Clare's.
As the Santa Clarita Valley continues to grow, the three Catholic Churches in this area are all in various stages of construction, working to meet the needs of our ever growing population.
We welcome you to St. Clare of Assisi Catholic Church. We are blessed by your presence and hope that you will visit us soon. Should you decide to join us for Sunday Masses, please be sure and introduce yourself to one of our priests.
