Our School Namesake: St. Clement
Our school is named after St. Clement, who in the year 91 A. D., became the third Pope after St. Peter. He was a disciple of St. Peter and St. Paul and one of the earliest Christian writers. A famous letter of his, written to the Christians of Corinth, encouraged them to reconcile their differences and live in unity and peace. Clement was exiled by Emperor Trajan to the Crimea where he was martyred in approximately 100 A. D.
St. Clement was born a Roman, but after learning about Jesus, he became a faithful follower of Christianity and was elected a Bishop by St. Paul. Later, he became Pope and served the Christian community for nine years. St. Clement was martyred for his beliefs. In a letter to some of his friends, he gave a message which we can all fashion our lives on to this day.
