Our Religious Vows

The Religious Vows

“For all the gifts we have received and continue to receive daily our vocation is a great gift.” St. Clare was always grateful to God the Father of mercies for everything in life and in answer to this generosity, she exhorts her daughters “to love him, (God) completely who gave himself completely.” Therefore a Capuchin Poor Clare Sister professes publicly her surrender to God’s will by consecrating her life to the service of God by way of Holy Vows of Poverty, Chastity, and Obedience.
She promises to live enclosed life within the cloister breaking the alabaster jar of her perfume by her life of prayer day and night for all creation.
