You will see people dressed from casual to business attire, but we invite you to come as you are.
Are children welcome?
Yes! We believe that if the church isn’t crying it's dying. There are family rooms available at Holy Name and St. Dominic. Please ask an usher for assistance.
Who can receive Holy Communion?
Confirmed Catholics may receive communion. Non-Catholics should abstain from taking communion, but we do invite you to come forward during the Eucharist and indicate you'd like a special blessing by crossing your arms.
How can I follow along during Mass?
The prayers and songs used during the Mass as well as the readings from the Bible that are proclaimed during Mass can be found in the Breaking Bread Missalette that both Holy Name of Jesus and St. Clement use.
Will I be expected to give money during Mass?
We do not ask our guests to give during offering, however we do appreciate your generosity.
"Carved in Stone-Nourished by Love" is the motto of the parish dating back to the celebration of 150 years in 1995. The cornerstone of our current church building was laid in 1868, and the limestone from which the church was built was taken from the quarry on 14th and Calumet Ave. The beauty of this cathedralesque church will lead you to contemplate the immensity and glory of God. Our Sheboygan North Parishes Catholic School - St. Elizabeth Ann Seton, is located on the parish grounds.
St. Clement Church was built in 1914, the year the Parish was founded. The church was designed in the Low Gothic style with two square towers facing west.
In the sanctuary to the left of the altar is a statue of St. John the Evangelist. To the right is St. Clement, shown wearing a triple crown, a symbol of a pope. St. Clement was the fourth Bishop of Rome and a contemporary of the Apostles.
There are three themes represented in the stained-glass windows. The high windows in the sanctuary show the four Evangelists, Matthew and John on the north wall and Mark and Luke on the south. The first window on the south wall above the side altar shows the Consecration of St. Clement as Pope and Bishop of Rome. Opposite this on the north wall is a high window showing an anchor. This is the symbol of St. Clement, who was martyred on a ship that sunk.
The large window in the south transept shows the Nativity with Mary holding the infant Jesus. This begins a series of scenes from the life of Jesus. Starting to the right with the Flight into Egypt, The Holy Family, and Jesus Blessing the Children. The series is continued on the north wall starting in the west with The Calling of the St. Peter, The Good Shepherd, and The Last Supper. The north transept shows The Ascension, the conclusion of Christ’s ministry on earth. Here Mary is shown with the Apostles emphasizing her role as the Mother if the Church.
"Alive in the Spirit" is the motto of St. Dominic parish, established in 1928 on what was then the western limit of the City of Sheboygan. The worship space at St. Dominic has a more contemporary feel, with "fan shaped" seating and music projected onto screens to aid participation in the Mass. All faith formation classes for our Sheboygan North Catholic Parishes are held on this campus, and the Parish Activity Center (P.A.C) is well used by the parishes and community at large, for a wide variety of events.
