Mission
As daughters of Saints Francis and Clare, we cherish their legacy of burning love for Jesus in the Holy Eucharist, steadfast loyalty to the Vicar of Christ and Holy Church, and a life of joyous Gospel poverty. Our daily life of prayer, work and recreation revolves around Holy Mass and the Divine Office, beginning each midnight with the Office of Matins. Our enclosure bears witness that only God can fill the deepest longing of the human heart. We reach out the arms of our prayer and penance to embrace the needs and hurts of all the world.
