Who was St. Clare? An Italian noblewoman and a follower of St. Francis of Assisi, St. Clare created the Order of Poor Ladies (later called the Order of St. Clare). She is also the patron saint of television — apparently, despite being ill and unable to attend Mass, she was reportedly able to see and hear the service on the convent wall.
What does the St. Clare Society do?We do what St. Clare was able to do, except with a Flipcam, YouTube and WordPress. The St. Clare Society records and posts Sunday sermons online.
Why do this? For those who can't attend a Sunday service, who are out of town, or who are trying to remember an insightful point that's right on the tip of the tongue, it's all online. If you're new to St. Michael's or considering attending, it's all online. This is one more way to share what we do at St. Michael's.
What do you need? The St. Clare Society is seeking additional members who will help ensure that every Sunday sermon is recorded. No cinematic experience is required — training and equipment will be provided.
How can I help? If you're interested in contributing to Open Mike by recording sermons, in helping with the next steps in social media, or in providing other ideas for our communications efforts, please contact the Parish Office.
