St. Clare Altar Society:

Saint Clare of Assisi is an Italian saint and one of the first followers of Saint Francis of Assisi. She founded the Order of Poor Ladies, a monastic religious order for women in the Franciscan tradition, and wrote their Rule of Life, the first set of monastic guidelines known to have been written by a woman. Following her death, the order she founded was renamed in her honour as the Order of Saint Clare, commonly referred to today as the Poor Clares. Her feast day is on 11 August. (

Established in 1914 under the patronage of St. Clare, foundress of the women Franciscans, the St. Clare Altar Society serves the needs of the parish through the daily Rosary devotion, assisting in the cleaning of the church (as scheduled) and fundraising. Annual dues are $10.00.  If you are interested in becoming a member, please call the Parish Office at 330-666-1373.
