On a quiet Sunday morning in Cooper, church parking lots spill over with cars and trucks. Dozens, maybe hundreds of people are indoors for their weekly worship at every church in town, save one.

On the square there are barely any cars parked at all. No shops are open yet, and no one is even milling around outside the building at the square’s northeast corner. The main reason, of course, is because St. Clare Catholic Church, which occupied the end building in a row of mainly retail outlets, held its final mass several weeks earlier than this particular cloudless Sunday morning.
