Our order of Capuchin Poor Clares professes the rule of Saint Clare, according to
the spirit and ideals of the reform of the capuchins.
The rule springs from the Gospel and leads us to gospel living. Encourage us to
live in simplicity, humility, holy poverty and holy unity.
The Capuchin Poor Clares came to Denver, Colorado in 1988.
After a time in prayer and reflection, a number of Sisters volunteered for the new
community in Denver,
to establish Our Lady of Light Monastery at the former rectory
of St. Patrick’s Church at 33rd & Pecos.
on November 17, 1988.
Place your mind in the mirror of eternity;
Place your soul in the splendor of glory;
Place your heart in the figure of the divine substance;
And, through contemplation, transform your entire being into the image of the Divine
So that you, yourself, may also experience what his friends experience when they
taste the hidden sweetness that God alone has kept from the beginning
For those who love him.
( Saint Clare)
Our mission as Capuchin Poor Clares is to live the Gospel.
We live our contemplative life in a cloistered community,
joyfully embracing a life of poverty and fraternity.
Our cloister is a visible sign of our total consecration to God.
YEAR OF MERCY
