In honor of the Jubilee celebration


We are celebrating the 800th anniversary of the Consecration of Saint Clare, as part of the program celebrations for this year sister Adriana Gonzales from the Monastery of Our Lady of Light created a new bracelet with a prayer of Saint Clare, which is available in all our communities.

Last month we had the visit of three of our sisters: sister Leticia from Wilmington, sister Frances and sister Lupita from Amarillo, thanks be to God sister Lupita and Frances were able to stay for a whole month with us, we really enjoy their companionship.



With their help we were able to work on the bracelets of Saint Clare, and now have them ready, we had a lot of fun working with them.


Prayer to Saint Clare of Assisi


Oh Glorious St. Clare, handmaid of the Lord!

On Palm Sunday you left the world,

leaving behind your riches,

to embrace a life

of poverty, chastity and obedience.

Help us to love our God as you did:

to love Him in His Incarnation,

in his life, and on the Cross.

Help us to weep for our sins

and trust in God’s mercy and love.

Through the Cross of the Lord,

you healed the sick, provided for the hungry,

converted sinners

and delivered them from evil.


Your life was full of love and care for others.

Oh St .Clare, may the light of Christ that illumined your life

draw us to love Him with undivided love.

Oh Mother Clare, ask God to heal the sick,

convert the sinners, provide for the hungry,

and  deliver us from evil.

Through Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior.
