Reflections from the Poor Clares

Reflections from the Poor Clare Sisters

The Franciscan Monastery of St. Clare is a community of Poor Clare Nuns in Cincinnati, Ohio. Their mission is to pray for the needs of the church, the world, and all people.

As followers of Sts. Clare and Francis of Assisi, the Poor Clares ardently seek and long for: To live as a loving community the Gospel of Our Lord Jesus Christ in poverty, littleness, simplicity and joy; open and sensitive to the Spirit working within us, among us, and beyond us; lovingly surrendering ourselves to the Lord; witnessing to the primacy of contemplative prayer and trusting in the care of the Lord each day of our lives.

Send your prayer requests to the Poor Clares on their website: Poor Clares Cincinnati
