Community of Poor Clare Colettines

As Poor Clare Nuns, we continue the ministry of St. Clare of Assisi who lived on alms, or financial contributions, and who shared the Gospel of Jesus Christ and the healing power of prayer with others. We believe that we are called by God to the same ministry as St. Clare.

By accepting alms to cover many of our expenses, we have time to be available to anyone seeking prayer. We receive and respond to over many prayer requests a month through phone calls and emails from our web page. We listen to the troubles of others; failing relationships, grief, betrayal and depression. We bring the suffering ones with us to prayer.

We believe that when people share their struggles with us in prayer, they no longer bear their burdens alone. We also rejoice in the joys of a person’s life. For example, we celebrate the gift of a birth or the satisfaction of completing a project or accomplishing a goal. God is here and present in all that we experience.

Although our major means of support is through alms, we also supplement our income through our repository and by creating and selling our own home produce and clothing.

However, proceeds from the alms we receive and the cards and oil that we sell do not cover all our expenses.

Although we live a simple life, we need your support to help us continue our ministry of prayer.

We invite you to join our ministry of prayer with your financial contributions. In addition, join with us as we pray for peace world wide as well as close to home. Be our 'Companions in Prayer' as we pray for those we know in need as well as the many unknown ones who suffer in our world.

If you wish to help support us in our ministry then please contact us either through the website or by any means convenient to yourself.

We become what we love and who we love shapes what we become.
If we love things, we become a thing. If we love nothing, we become nothing. Imitation is not a literal mimicking of Christ, rather it means becoming the image of the beloved, an image disclosed through transformation. ~ St. Clare of Assisi
