Monastery of Saint Clare of the Immaculate Conception

Devoted to the Church and obedient to the Holy Father as we live a life of prayer and and worship.

COME TO KNOW JESUS OUR LORD

"(The contemplative life) is rooted in the silence of the cloister; it produces a rich harvest of grace and mercy. (It) has always represented in the Church, and for the Church, her praying heart, a store house of grace and apostolic fruitfulness, and a visible witness to the mystery and rich variety of holiness."

Pope Francis, Apostolic Constitution, Vultum Dei Quaerere (On Women's Contemplative Life)

 

"Among the other favors which we have received and do daily receive from our Benefactor, the Father of mercies, for which we ought to return the more thanks to that glorious Father, outstanding is our vocation..."

- Testament of Saint Clare
