What a great laudable exchange:
to leave the things of time for those of eternity.

Capuchin 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.

Following the example of St. Francis and St. Clare and Blessed Maria Lorenza Longo, the Capuchin Sisters seek to follow the Poverty of Christ.

We embrace the Holy Gospel through our vows of Chastity, Poverty and Obedience;

in a cloistered community.

Our prayer life consists of the daily celebration of the Eucharist, Liturgy of the hours, adoration of the Blessed Sacrament, and private prayer.

“Cling to His most sweet Mother,
who carried a Son whom the heavens could not contain;
and yet she carried Him in the little enclosure of her holy womb
and held Him on her virginal lap.”

St. Clare of Assisi

 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.
