Clare was born and raised in Lafayette, Louisiana and is the oldest of the seven children in her family. She worked in the pro-life movement for several years before experiencing a call to foreign missions at World Youth Day in Krakow, Poland in July of 2016. However, she dismissed this call and continued working in the pro-life movement. The following spring she felt God clearly leading her in another direction. After praying for God’s will in her life, she heard His call to foreign missions again and this time she listened. She soon attended a Come-and-See retreat with Family Missions Company and knew this was exactly where God wanted her to be. Clare cannot wait to begin her life as a Catholic foreign missionary for Christ, serving the poorest of the poor and proclaiming the gospel to the nations.
“If I preach the gospel, this is no reason for me to boast, for an obligation has been imposed on me, and woe to me if I do not preach it!” – 1 Corinthians 9:16
