"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…

February 2016

Dear Friends,

Have you ever experienced February to sometimes seem long even though it's the shortest month - and wondered why?

I wonder if it could be because we are at the cusp of Spring; we can see and even smell the signs of Spring yet we have to wait awhile longer for the green shoots to appear. Isn't that a parable for life! Yet it's always worth the wait!

We ask your prayers for our Sr. Joyce who departed this world on January 30th after many years of debilitating illness. She has finally arrived at her New Life and we rejoice with her although we miss her physical presence with us. We give thanks for the foundation she helped to build here as one of our founding sisters.

It was their courage, presence and faithfulness as pioneers that made a strong foundation. It is the generosity and faith of friends like you who make it possible for us to continue in their footsteps.

May you be blessed abundantly for your faith and generosity.


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