The Poor Clare community is a special home for consecrated women who serve their days in work, prayer, adoration and solitude before the Lord and for the salvation of souls.Each of our Sisters brings to life the ancient verses of Psalm 118: "Give thanks to the Lord for he is good, for his love endures forever." At all hours of the day and night, the Poor Clare Sisters of Perpetual Adoration engage in this ceaseless prayer of thanksgiving before Christ's Eucharistic Presence in the Blessed Sacrament. This perpetual adoration is the hallmark of the Order and at the heart of each Sister's vocation.
Our order was established by Mother Marie de Ste. Claire Bouillevaux in 1856 in Troyes, France for the express purpose of Eucharistic worship in a spirit of thanksgiving.Through our perpetual adoration of the Eucahrist, we strive to become more like the One we worship, strengthened in love, forgiveness, and support of one another in the power of God's Spirit.Through our vows of poverty, chastity, and obedience, our daily life of prayer and adoration, and our communal life, we each surrender our lives to Jesus in continual thanksgiving.
