Community News



The St. Clare Fraternity sponsored a meeting for the Secular Franciscans from our region and in our gathering room on the weekend of May 6th.  Two groups met simultaneously: formation directors from our region and the spiritual assistants with the ministers of each fraternity.  Those from farther away stayed overnight in our guest apartments.


On May 9th our Advisory Board met in our gathering room for their quarterly meeting.  We are so grateful for their guidance in making important decisions about our financial situation and the upkeep of our building, etc.


On July 5th we celebrated the completion of one year since the arrival of Sisters Francis and Pia from Tanzania.  They contribute much to the joy of community living and praying together.   


Several of us have made our annual retreats during the months of May and June.  Each sister has the the opportunity of using our own retreat rooms or going elsewhere for a week for more intense prayer and solitude, a time of renewal. 






We are looking for some help with answering the door and phone.  If you can spend one morning a week or month, we would be very grateful.  If you can help, call us at
