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.
