For young ladies who are interested in this life, we offer a chance to stay with our community for a week, so as to follow our daily schedule outside of the enclosure and discern their vocation. To arrange and plan your visit please contact us at your convenience.
The Poor Clare Nuns of Perpetual Adoration (P.C.P.A.) are a Pontifical Contemplative Order of Cloistered Nuns with the privilege of Solemn Vows, Papal Enclosure, and Solemn Exposition of the Most Blessed Sacrament. We are part of the Second Order of Saint Francis of Assisi.
Our lives are totally consecrated to Adoration of Our Lord Jesus Christ in the Most Blessed Sacrament, solemnly exposed in the Monstrance in our Monastery Chapel. Each sister is privileged to have a daily hour of Adoration and also a few hours of night Adoration each week.
A Franciscan vocation is a call to serve God in simplicity and joy of heart. By the vows of Poverty, Chastity and Obedience the heart is set free of earthly attachments and is able more easily to concentrate on living the Gospel as exemplified in the life of our Holy Father Francis and Holy Mother Clare.
Perhaps you are called to spend your life adoring Jesus in the Eucharist and thanking Him for all His Goodness. Ask Mary our Mother to enlighten you and guide you to the place in which you can become holy. If you feel you might have a vocation to our contemplative order, please write and tell us about yourself.
To become a Poor Clare of Perpetual Adoration, a young woman must meet the following requirements:
- You must be a young woman between the ages of 18 to 35
- Be in good physical and psychological health
- Have a High School education
- Have the ability to live in community and to work with others
