Prayer Requests

As Franciscan contemplative women religious, we don’t engage in any ministry of service outside of the monastery.  Our primary ministry is a life of prayer for the needs of the world. Click here for more information about our ministry of prayer.

La Foresta Retreat House

We are blessed to have La Foresta on our grounds. It is a 3-bedroom home that is available for individuals who are seeking quiet time in a sacred space. Retreatants are welcome to join us for the Liturgy of the Hours, and Spiritual Direction is available. Click here for more information about La Foresta.

Prayer Remembrance Cards

We offer customized cards that you can order and send to friends or relatives when you want them to know that they are being remembered in our life of prayer. Whether you wish to commemorate a joyous occasion such as a birthday, anniversary or graduation, or to offer get well wishes or condolences, our Prayer Remembrance Cards are the perfect gift.

Altar Breads

We provide hosts to parishes, hospitals, retreat houses and other places of Eucharistic Celebration in a variety of sizes in both whole wheat and white. Altar Breads have been our main source of remunerative income since our founding over 50 years ago. Lots of work and love go into this ministry. Click here for more information about this service.
