Poor Clare Colettine Nuns

Poor Clare Colettine Nuns - Minooka, IL
Our vocation as Poor Clare nuns is an answer to this gracious invitation and lofty challenge of our Holy Mother Saint Clare. It is our greatest joy and awesome privilege to "draw near to Our Lord Jesus Christ." We do this primarily in the daily Sacrifice of the Holy Mass, in the Hours of the Divine Office prayed by day and by night, by our hours of Eucharistic Adoration and times of private prayer and meditation. This was our Holy Mother’s unique formation method as she told all her followers to always gaze upon the Lord and to be with Him always and in every place.
