    santa chiara 1Aspirancy

    A young woman’s discernment with the community begins with a week-long aspirancy. She spends this time living the horarium of the nuns, spending time with Our Lord in adoration and meeting with the Sisters who work in formation.  During her stay, the aspirant stays outside the enclosure, but within the monastery and is able to take part in the Mass and Liturgy of the Hours in the main chapel.
