"May almighty God bless you. May God look upon you with mercy and give you peace..."-Blessing of St. Clare

A message from our Abbess…

Dear Friends

It seems we have a rather humorous cultural conflict occurring this month - Valentine's Day and Ash Wednesday are on the same day! So does that mean no chocolates for the beloved?!

Or perhaps the coincidence can be a catalyst rather than a conflict...

As we look ahead and prepare for Lent this year maybe it would do us well to take a moment to reflect on how we can gift OUR Beloved Lord Jesus in a way that will deepen our relationship, even beyond 40 days.

Let’s each ask what can strengthen my relationship with the Lord? Probably more than "giving up" chocolate, right? Spending more time together? Becoming a better version of myself as God made me to become?

Think about it and ask God to nudge you in the right direction - and God will! May we each have the courage and generosity to do what is ours to do!

We are grateful to you for your friendship and your gift which makes our life of prayer possible. We are so blessed to have you in our lives and we give thanks for you daily!


Sr. Carolyn Forgette, osc and all your Poor Clare Sisters
