OUR CHARISM

Our Charism

Our Capuchin Poor Clare order professes the rule of St. Clare of Assisi, which is to live the life holy Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ, following the example of our Father St. Francis, practicing obedience, poverty and chastity.

We live each one of these according to the teachings of St. Clare and the ideals of Maria Lorenza Longo. Being a contemplative community, we live a life of seclusion from the affairs of the world, in fraternity and simplicity.

Prayer is at the heart of the Charism of the Capuchin Poor Clare, praying day and night before the Blessed Sacrament.
