Sr. Clare Millea, ASCJ, is among ten members of the Archdiocese of Hartford to receive the Pro Ecclesia et Pontifice Cross — the highest honor that can be awarded to laity by the Pope.

Created by Pope Leo XIII in 1888, the Pro Ecclesia et Pontifice Cross is awarded for distinguished support of, and service to, the universal Church and the Holy See. The honor was bestowed by Archbishop Leonard P. Blair on May 19, 2019, at St. Thomas Chapel at the Archdiocesan Pastoral Center.

Sr. Clare currently serves the Archdiocese of Hartford as the Director of the Office of Faith and Culture, and as Assistant Chancellor. She was Superior General of the Apostles of the Sacred Heart of Jesus at the Generalate in Rome from 2004–2016. She was also the Vatican-appointed Apostolic Visitator for the Women’s Religious Institutes from 2009–2012. 

Sr. Clare holds a licentiate in Canon Law and a Doctor of Canon Law degree from the Pontifical Lateran University in Rome.
