ST CLEMENT PARISH PHOTO GALLERY

St Clement Church gets new sign, July 9, 2016:

The vibrant parish of St Clement in Vivian commissioned artist Diane Reger Purifoy to hand paint a new sign for our church.  Diane is the sister of longtime parishioner and Trustee Frank Reger.   Diane shared these words:  "This sign needed to be more than just words on a sign board.   It needed to show the gentle love of Christ as well as the power of his gift of salvation for all.  The "painterly" style conveys the peaceful presence of Christ."
