About Us

Who are we?

We are a small community of contemplative religious women known as the Poor Clare Nuns or St. Clare Sisters. Our contemplative call is expressed in our invitation to pray with and for others. We think of ourselves as Companions in Prayer and respond to several hundred Prayer Requests every month.

Who asks for our prayers?

As Companions in Prayer, we are available to anyone needing prayer – through emails, phone calls, and our Prayer Request page.

We listen to the anguish of someone in a troubled marriage or grieving a death or dealing with an addiction. We share in the sorrows of the human heart and bring the suffering ones with us to prayer.

We also rejoice in the joys of a person’s life — a birth, completing a project, accomplishing a goal, and celebrating birthdays and anniversaries.

Know that God is here and present in all that we experience.
Know that you are not alone. We are praying with and for you

What is our life like?

We begin the day with contemplative prayer and meditation. Sometimes we also have Eucharist. After our daily chores, we again gather to pray the psalms. We end our day with a private prayer of thanksgiving.

How do we support ourselves?

Traditionally, our community has lived on donations as our major means of support. We see the face of God in these donations, helping us to cover expenses while still being available to anyone seeking prayer.

We supplement our donations with projects of spiritual benefit to others. We have created Fragrant Blessing Oil to help individuals pray with others. People use the oil to bless and soothe someone in need.

Will you join our prayer ministry?

Please join us as we pray for peace in our world as well as peace close to home. Be Companions in Prayer with us as we pray for those in need as well as the unknown ones who suffer in our world.

We invite you to sign up for our newsletter and learn more about our Fragrant Blessing Oil. You may leave us a Prayer Request and support our ministry of prayer with your donation, large or small.
