Saint Clement offers periodic and ongoing opportunities for parishioners to live their call to stewardship and justice by generously sharing their time, gifts, and talents in service with and for others. Please see below for upcoming opportunities! 
For more information, or to sign up for any of these opportunities, please contact the staff member listed. Read our latest Service Opportunities e-newsletter here.

Friday Sack Lunches

For many years, Saint Clement parishioners have generously prepared sack lunches for the hungry, which are distributed from the parish every Friday morning. We are currently scheduling volunteers to make and deliver sack lunches for September-December 2021. 

Volunteers provide 6 sack lunches for their assigned Friday, making the lunches from home based on guidelines we provide. Lunches are then dropped off at the parish on Friday mornings, between 8:30am-9:20am. Sign up once or get on a monthly scheudle - a wonderful act of service to complete as a family! For available dates, please email Fr. Matt Litak.

Hospitality during Friday Sack Lunches

Join other volunteers from our Parish and aid in offering coffee and hot chocolate to those who wait in line outside during our regularly scheduled Friday sack lunch program. Share in hospitality and conversation, and serve as a welcoming face of Saint Clement. We are also looking for volunteers to supply the refreshments for hospitality. To sign up to provide breakfast items/refreshments, please email Fr. Matt Litak
  • Dates: every Friday morning throughout the year
  • Time: 8:30am to 9:45am

Catholic Charities Soup Kitchen

Once a month, Saint Clement volunteers assist volunteers from Holy Name Cathedral in serving Catholic Charities' Friday supper. As Catholic Charities has transitioned to meals served to-go, volunteers are needed to help box and package 225 meals every third Friday of the month.
Masks and gloves will be provided, and the workspace is large enough to ensure social distancing. Additionally, all packed meals are distributed by Catholic Charities security personnel outside of the building, so volunteers will not be in direct contact with guests.  For more information and to sign up, contact Joanna Krynski
  • Dates: Friday, August 20
  • Time: 11:30am-1:30pm (tentative timing; please note, the start time varies and will be shared with volunteers the week of the event)
  • Location: 721 N. LaSalle, between Huron & Superior

Lunches are dropped off at Catholic Charities' main location, 721 N. LaSalle, by 4pm on Tuesday afternoons or the Monday evening before. (Typically volunteers make either 15 or 30 lunches each.) Please consider providing lunches any Tuesday that you are availalable! For guidelines on what to include in lunches or to sign up for an upcoming date, please email Joanna Krynski
