About Us

We are a community of contemplative Catholic women called Poor Clare Sisters, also known as Klarissi or Sisters of St. Clare.

Our calling is to live the Gospel of Jesus Christ in the footsteps of St. Francis of Assisi and St. Clare of Assisi in fraternal life. 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.

Place your soul in the Radiance of His Glory
Place your heart in the Image of His Divine Being
In contemplation be transformed into God’s image

(Second letter of St. Clare to St. Agnes of Prague)

Follow the Lamb wherever He may go,
You, who belong completely to Him
Who takes away the sin of the world.

(Forth letter of St. Clare to St. Agnes of Prague)
