We instill a strong sense of spirituality through our religious celebrations, regular prayer, relationships, service and partnership with our local St. Theresa's Parish.
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
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 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.
Let us try to follow the message that St. Clement gave to us.
ST. CLEMENT, PRAY FOR US!
