Devotions

Msgr. Elmo Romagosa Perpetual Adoration Chapel:

Here at St. Clement of Rome we are blessed to have a perpetual adoration chapel attached to our church building.  The Msgr. Romagosa chapel is open for prayer 24 hours per day, 7 days per week with the exception of a few holidays throughout the year when the chapel is temporarily closed. We invite you to make a visit to our chapel for an hour or for any amount of time you might be able to spend with our Eucharistic Lord.

Shrines:

In the right and left corners of the nave of our church are two shrines set aside for special prayer.  The Pieta shrine contains statues of the Pieta, St. Peter, and St. Paul.  The Our Lady of Perpetual Help Shrine contains statues of Our Lady of Perpetual Help, St. Anthony of Padua, and St. Jude.  We invite you to stop by these shrines and seek the intercession of the saints by lighting a candle for a loved one or whatever special intentions you might have.  The suggested donation for lighting a candle is $3.00 for the large 5-day votive candles and $1.00 for the small 10-hour votive candles.

Divine Mercy Chaplet and Rosary:

The Divine Mercy Chaplet is prayed Monday through Saturday at 7:30am in the Cry Room of the church followed by the Holy Rosary at 7:45am.  All are invited to participate. 

Our Lady of Perpetual Help Devotions:

The novena prayers to Our Lady of Perpetual Help are prayed immediately after the 8:15am and 6:00pm Masses on Tuesdays.

Exposition and Benediction of the Most Blessed Sacrament:

In order to foster a greater devotion to the Eucharist, in addition to the adoration chapel, we also offer a monthly holy hour including Exposition and Benediction of the Most Blessed Sacrament.  Exposition and Benediction is held from 7:00pm to 8:00pm on the first Thursday of the month in Spanish and from 8:45am to 9:45am on the first Friday of the month in English

First Saturday Devotions:

On December 10, 1925, Our Lady of Fatima asked that the faithful dedicate the first Saturdays of five consecutive months in reparation for sin and to console her Immaculate Heart by going to confession, receiving Holy Communion, praying five decades of the Holy Rosary, and meditating on the mysteries of the Rosary for at least 15 minutes.  This has become known as the First Saturday Devotions.  We celebrate these devotions on the first Saturday of each month by offering our regularly scheduled morning Rosary and Mass in atonement for sin and for the conversion of the United States of America.  

Prayer Ministry

It is a Spiritual Work of Mercy to visit and pray for the sick as well as to pray for the dead.  Here at St. Clement of Rome we practice these works of mercy through our prayer ministry.  If you know of any of our parishioners that are sick or in distress or if you have anyone you would like to add to our prayer list, please contact us at the Parish Center (887-7821). This list is maintained each week in the parish bulletin.  You can also click here for a selection of prayers for those who are sick and for the deceased.
