"Keep your eyes fixed on Jesus." (St Clare of Assisi)
Each Poor Clare desires to do just this, to keep her eyes fixed
on Jesus, through a contemplative style of living in community.
St Clare writes in her Testament, that the greatest of all gifts
from our loving God is the gift of vocation. We believe that young women are being called to live this Franciscan, contemplative
life in Delray Beach, Florida and we pray that they will respond generously to God's invitation to give one's life completely to the
One who gave His life completely for love of us.
