7. St. Clare

This white marble statue of St. Clare is on the plot for the order of Roman Catholic nuns known as “the Poor Clares”. They are a cloistered order and their convent stood for many years in Oak Bay.

Centuries ago, when Sister Clare was unable to attend Midnight Mass, she experienced the miracle of being able to see the mass in a vision on the blank wall of her room. Soon after television was developed, she was named the Patron Saint of Television.
