Odoemenam worked for more than six years in the Diocese of Burlington, Vermont. As a well experienced priest of the Society of Divine Vocations, he is a well trained preacher of the word, and an able retreat preacher.
Welcome Father! May the Good Lord, who directed his apostles, continue to use you for the work of ministry in his vineyard.

Dear Parishioners, we thank you for your continued support of the Parish of St. Clement Pope. Though the Church has resumed Sunday Liturgies, we know some of you may still have concerns for your safety and health. If so and you would like to continue to support the parish you may continue to do so by mail or dropping your envelopes in the mail slot at the Rectory.
Again, thank you for your support.
Pope Francis prayer to the Virgin Mary to watch over the world in this current moment of crisis.
O Mary, you shine continuously on our journey as a sign of salvation and hope. We entrust ourselves to you, Health of the sick.
At the foot of the Cross you participated in Jesus’ pain, with steadfast faith. You, Salvation of the Roman People, know what we need.
We are certain that you will provide, so that, as you did at the Cana of Galilee, joy and feasting might return after this moment of trial.
Help us, Mother of Divine Love, to conform Ourselves to the Father’s sill and to do what Jesus tells us:
He who took our sufferings upon Himself, and bore our sorrows to bring us, through the Cross, to the joy of the Resurrection. Amen.
We seek refuge under your protection, O Holy Mother of God.Do not despise our pleas-we who are put to the test– and deliver us from every danger, O glorious and blessed Virgin.
Pope Francis—11 March 2020, 19:08
