Welcome to the website of
Poor Clare Sisters
We are a contemplative community of religious sisters. We belong to the Franciscan family and profess the Rule of Saint Clare: Living the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ. We live in accordance to the spirituality and ideals that Venerable Maria Lorenza Longo had when she founded the Capuchin Sisters in Naples, Italy in 1535.
Our prayer life consists of the daily celebration of the Eucharist, Liturgy of the hours, adoration of the Blessed Sacrament and private prayer. Silence is a very important part of our lives in order to be in communion with our Lord and each other.
Our community came from the Monastery of the Most Blessed Sacrament in Amarillo, Texas.
We arrived in the Diocese of Pueblo, Colorado on 4 February 2001 to establish a monastery of "contemplative life" in the Diocese.
We support ourselves by:
Sewing and doing embroidery custom vestments, altar linens, banners and much more.
