Saint Monica bless you.

Father Clifford is the reverend of the Saint Monica's Church in Rivet City in the year 2277.

Background

Father Clifford was born in 2217. At the age of 60, he spends most of his days in the church, but leaves for a couple hours every day to walk around the carrier. He's a nice guy and likes just about everyone he meets. He is especially fond of telling the story of Saint Monica, who went on a journey to be with her son and saved his soul. He counsels Mister Lopez during his frequent visits to the church. He's mildly envious of Doctor Preston; it doesn't help that Doctor Preston never attends church.[1]

Before 2077, Clifford came across Marcella, a Christian missionary from the Abbey of the Road. She was delighted to find another person in the wasteland as passionate about religion as she was. Clifford acts as a teacher and somewhat father to his acolyte Diego, who will most likely become a priest when Clifford is deceased.

Relationships

Father Clifford has an acolyte, Diego, who he has taken care of since Diego was abandoned by his father. The bond they have is like father and son.

Daily schedule

Father Clifford is normally seen in and around Saint Monica's Church but is known to roam around the inside of Rivet City talking to other residents. On occasion Father Clifford can be found in The Muddy Rudder lecturing anyone present on the dangers of sin in the bar.

Every Sunday Father Clifford holds a mass, for which most of Rivet City's named non-player characters show up.

Bugs

Xbox 360Icon xbox360.png PCIcon pc.png Playstation 3Icon ps3.png The Sunday sermon is often glitched: either Father Clifford is not present at all, but non-player characters shush each other because he is speaking, or he will be present, but not speaking. It is advisable to go to church before starting A Nice Day For a Wedding, as the Sunday sermon seems to get stuck because of a bug in that quest. [verified]

  • He has also been noticed speaking his sermon in the upper deck hallways on days other than Sunday. [platforms tag needed]
