About St. Clement of Rome
St. Clement of Rome Parish was founded on August 14, 1965. At this time, the Archdiocese of New Orleans was was experiencing rapid growth as a result of the “Baby Boom” following World War II. At this time, the Archdiocese of New Orleans was being led by Most Reverend John P. Cody, the tenth Archbishop of New Orleans, after the death of Most Reverend Joseph F. Rummel. During his tenure as archbishop, twenty-five new parishes were created in the archdiocese including St. Clement of Rome Parish which was carved out of St. Benilde Parish. And as they say, the rest is history. Our parish began to thrive from the start as parishioners lovingly invested their time and effort to make St. Clement of Rome a deeply spiritual community rooted in service to God and neighbor. From that first day forward, St. Clement of Rome Parish began to form a new and unique identity.
The mission of St. Clement of Rome Parish is to help members of its family – the old and the young, the rich and the poor – to accept their call from God to live as one Body of Christ.
