Close to 3,000 followers of EWTN commented. Many knew Sr. Clare through the children’s series, “Hi, Lucy,” in which Sr. Clare animated the voice and personality of a cute, pink bird who would go to talk to her “teacher,” Sr. Grace. “Hi, Lucy” is one of many of EUK Mamie Foundation – HM Television’s productions known worldwide thanks to EWTN’s broadcasting.

EWTN’s post begins like this: “Sister Clare was a young nun who was the voice of "Lucy" in the children's series "Hi Lucy" that aired on EWTN for many years. On Saturday, April 16, Sister Clare and five postulants -- Jazmina, Mayra, María Augusta, Valeria, and Catalina -- from the Servant Sisters of the Home of the Mother in Ecuador -- were killed in an earthquake. Below is Sister Clare's wonderful vocation story as well as a link to a news story on the tragedy. We ask you to join us in prayer for all who lost their lives, for their families, and for their religious communities. http://www.catholicherald.co.uk/news/2016/04/18/northern-irish-nun-killed-in-ecuador-earthquake/#.VxUihUQ6-KE.email
