Bio: Chaplain Clara Annunziata Harris wears many hats. She leads a Cancer Support Group, is a spiritual counselor, and shared her spiritual gifts at the Betty Ford Cancer Center. Clara Annunziata Harris began her career working in Illinois at the Joliet Diocese. She helped to build St. Daniel the Prophet parish in Wheaton, Illinois, with her Pastor Fr. White, and other talented people on their team. There she began facilitating support groups. Among them were for Women dealing with cancer, Bereavement groups for the young, and another for mature people. Caregivers continued to be the most essential group. She developed many other areas while going through her CPE education, including working with cancer patients in hospice.
She moved to California in 1995. Her first job was as a Spiritual Care Counselor at the Betty Ford Center. The Cancer and Blood Institute later hired her to continue doing support groups, dealing with patients daily there and in the hospital, as well as home visits. She did support groups weekly, including Women dealing with Cancer, Men dealing with Cancer, Bereavement, and a major Caregiving group. She also facilitated cancer groups for Doctors outside of this practice.
In her “retirement,” she continues to facilitate cancer support and individual people in need of support.
