We are very grateful for our many generous friends and benefactors who believe in the power of prayer and have supported
our contemplative way of life through the years.
All who have been generous to us can be assured that they and their loved
ones are remembered each day as the Sisters gather for prayer. In addition, throughout the year, Masses are offered in
our Chapel for all of our benefactors, living and deceased.
A Poor Clare monastery begins with the invitation of a
Bishop for Sisters to come with their ministry of prayer. Once this new community has eight solemnly professed Sisters,
it becomes an autonomous monastery; there is no Motherhouse or Provincialate to give assistance.
Although we try to provide
for our everyday needs by the "work of our hands", Poor Clares have always needed to turn to "the table of the Lord", as St. Francis
called the kindness of others, our wonderful benefactors.
We continually ask God to reward the goodness of those
who support us by their many kindnesses, gifts and prayers.
