We are committed to supporting the development of full learner potential and called to develop responsible, respectful and reflective children in a Christ-centered global community.
St. Clement is a Christ-centered, culturally diverse community that fosters critical and creative thinking, international-mindedness and social justice. The staff and students are devoted to creating an environment that embraces life-long learning; an environment where everyone is inspired to achieve excellence in academics and strength in body, mind and spirit
St. Clement School is happy to work in partnership with St. Theresa Parish and other schools in our St. Theresa Family to support parants and children in preparing for the Sacraments of First Reconciliation and First Communion. Sacramental Sessions are offered in the fall, winter and spring in order to accommodate the busy schedules of families in our school community. The Sacramental Program involves:
- Parents registering their children for the sacraments and purchasing study guides through the school, at the Parent Information Evening, or through the parish.
- Parents and children taking part in three Saturday morning classes (one hour in length) for First Reconciliation or two Saturday morning classes (one hour in length) and a teaching mass for First Communion. All sessions are conducted by one of the parish priests.
- Parents and children reviewing assigned sections of the study guides at home prior to the parish-based sessions.
- Children receiving the Sacrament of First Communion as a group with classmates from school at a designated mass.
- Please note that parents whose child was not baptized at St. Theresa Parish, are required to submit a copy of the child's baptismal certificate with their registrations.
All of the Schools in the Edmonton Catholic School District use a Religious Education Program that is prescribed by our Alberta Bishops and provided through the National Office for Religious Education in Ottawa. The Program ranges from Kindergarten to Grade Twelve, and offers students with an overview of our Catholic faith as well as grade specific themes.
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 about 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.
It is Better To Give Than to Receive
We Should be Thankful for All That We Have Been Given
Listen Always to the Word of God
Do Not Be Lazy
The Rich Should Help The Poor.
