Tour through St. Clement church in McGregor: St. Clement parish is 143 years old! It was established in 1880 in the hamlet of McGregor. The present church building was built in 1903. St. Clement was developed for the local French Canadian Catholic families whose descendants remain in this same area today.
The church was named after St. Clement, the fourth Pope. It's church bell is named Ave Maria and was installed in 1883. Over the years there have been many renovations and improvements to enhance and preserve this beautiful and historic church. Mass is celebrated every Sunday at 9:45am. God Bless all the pioneers and present parishioners who have generated a faith-filled community to this day.
