Poor Clares of Perpetual Adoration
at Our Lady of the Angels Monastery
in Hanceville, Alabama

The Poor Clare Nuns of Perpetual Adoration (P.C.P.A.) are cloistered, contemplative nuns, dedicated to perpetual adoration of Our Lord in the Most Blessed Sacrament.

As members of the Second Order of St. Francis of Assisi, we unite the Franciscan form of Gospel living with special dedication to Eucharistic adoration in a spirit of thanksgiving. Remaining always with the Lord, we hold in prayer the Church, all priests and missionaries, and all in need.
