Welcome to our Poor Clare world!

We invite you to come and see what wonders God is doing in our lives; we are Poor Clares in the Mother Maddelena Bentivoglio Federation and the Holy Name Federation.

We welcome you to see our various monasteries in North America, meet our sisters, learn about our heritage and our life as contemporary Franciscan contemplative women living in the tradition of St. Clare and St. Francis.

We hope you will experience the joy that is ours and we pray you will be heartened to know of our presence and support, but more important, of God’s loving care for each of us and you as well!

Peace and well being to all who enter here.
