We are a community of contemplative Catholic women called Poor Clare Nuns, also known as Sisters of St. Clare. We continue the ministry of St. Clare of Assisi, who shared the Gospel of Jesus Christ and the healing power of prayer with others.

We devote our life primarily to prayer;  we seek to know the presence of God in our lives and to bring others closer to God through our prayer. That is why we want to be Companions in Prayer with you. Please join with us in our prayer.

MT 22:34-40

Three of my closer friends have kids who are getting married next year. Actually, I know all six sets of parents, and through them, am fairly well acquainted with the three brides and three grooms. They have honored me by asking that I preside at their wedding liturgies and witness their marriage covenants.

Right Relations
Matt 18:15-20

The Commemoration of All the Faithful Departed
(All Souls)

All Souls PrayerToday we remember and pray for those we love who have left this life for the eternal life that Jesus promises all of us. We invite you to sit quietly for a few moments, bringing to mind loved ones who have died. Then, when you have them in mind, join us in the words of St. Clare, which she prayed just moments before her own death.

“Go without anxiety my soul, for you have a good Guide for your journey — because He who created you has sent you the Holy Spirit, and has always guarded you as a mother does her child who loves her.”

May eternal light shine upon…………and may he/she rest in peace. Amen.
 
An Eskimo proverb
“Perhaps they are not stars, but rather openings in heaven
Where the love of our lost ones pours through
And shines down upon us to let us know they are happy.”
