Our current President, Judith Mercurius Poten, had the following message on hearing of the news of Sister Maureen Clare’s passing: “Missing you, sleep in peace Sister Maureen Clare, you will be greatly missed by all the phenomenal women you helped shape and raise. You will forever be in my heart.”
“Sister Maureen Clare, you taught me how to be humble and how to lead. I will always remember those patio lessons that were meant to increase our strength of character” - Lara Dyke corresponding secretary.
“When I hear St. Francis' prayer "Make me a channel of your peace" I always think of Sr. Maureen Clare who lived her life praying to be just that, and in so doing she inspired all of us who knew her to do likewise. "O Master grant that I may never seek, so much to be consoled as to console". May she rest in Peace.” - Fran McFarlane (nee Shim)
