St. Clement of Rome Catholic Church was founded on March l9, 1952.  Initially, Mass was celebrated at St. Agnes Home on Manchester and Woodlawn Roads on Sundays and Holy Days and at the temporary rectory at 1134 Bopp Road on weekdays. Ground was broken on July l9, 1953, for the first structure on the premises: the eight-classroom school, the cafeteria and the temporary church. Within but a few years, an eight-room addition would be added to the school and the rectory would be built.

In 1965, St. Clement Catholic Church was built and the former church converted into a gymnasium. Then, in 1998, the parish purchased the house at 1456 Bopp Road, immediately south of the rectory, to house its newly instituted Youth Ministry Program and to provide temporary quarters for the school library. In 2001-2002, a four classroom addition to the school was constructed, along with a parish center, a new kitchen, principal's offices and a music/assembly room.


Presently, St. Clement Parish numbers just under 5000 parishioners. There are 360 students enrolled in the elementary school and 130 in the Parish School of Religion.


These facts and statistics are easy to recount, but the richest aspect of our parish's history is impossible to quantify. The friendships that have been formed, the mutual support that has been experienced, the works of charity that have been extended, the memories that have been stored, the praise and glory given to Almighty God are all among the most important factors that make St. Clement parish the warm spiritual home we are so privileged to call our own.

Safe Environment Program

Every parent with children in Saint Clement of Rome School, every employee of Saint Clement of Rome, and every adult wishing to volunteer to work in any capacity with the children of Saint Clement of Rome parish must be in full compliance with the Archdiocesan Safe Environment Program (SEP). The SEP has been in place in every Catholic diocese in the country since June 2002. In order to better ensure the safety of all children in Catholic schools and parishes, the program mandates that adults who work with or volunteer around children must be in full compliance with the SEP. The three components of the SEP include a Protecting God's Children workshop, a background check through the Family Care Safety Registry, and a signed Code of Ethics. For more information on how to come into compliance with the Safe Environment Program, please contact Lisa Stuhlmann at the rectory (314.965.0709, extension 23).
