Totally love Him, Who gave Himself totally for your love. 

- St. Clare of Assisi

vocation-discernment-week-olamnuns-00For young ladies 18-35 years of age, who are interested in our life as Poor Clares of Perpetual Adoration, we offer a chance to stay with our community for a week, so as to follow our daily schedule outside of the enclosure and discern their vocation. If you are interested, please contact our Vocation Directress.


To become a Poor Clare of Perpetual Adoration, a young woman must meet the following requirements:

  • You must be a young woman between the ages of 18 to 35
  • Be in good physical and psychological health
  • Have a High School education
  • Have the ability to live in community and to work with others
  • Have a love for prayer and adoration of the Most Blessed Sacrament

A Franciscan vocation is a call to serve God in simplicity and joy of heart. By the vows of Poverty, Chastity and Obedience the heart is set free of earthly attachments and is able more easily to concentrate on living the Gospel as exemplified in the life of our Holy Father Francis and Holy Mother Clare.

How do you know you have a vocation?

  A vocation to the religious life and in particular to contemplative life, is a special call. It cannot be explained, only accepted.

is-god-calling-me-olamnuns-200It is a silent voice whose urging creates within the soul a burning desire to know God, to be with God, to serve God and completely dedicate one's total self to God.

It is not something the soul decides.  It is an acceptance of a choice made by God.  It is a courageous gesture of love on the part of the soul and an outpouring of merciful love on the part of God.

  Men climb mountains, scale heights, venture into the unexplored to prove to other men it can be done. This is the witness of today's disciples -- they provide a needed witness that holiness is possible in today's world because there is one whose Indwelling Presence accomplishes the difficult, the impossible and the miraculous -- a change of life, ideals and goals.
