Our History

Rebuilding the Church through a Life of Prayer


In…this little place (of San Damiano) the virgin Clare enclosed herself for love of the heavenly Spouse.
Here she enclosed herself to live, hiding her body from the tempest of the world for the rest of her life.
[She brought] forth a community of virgins of Christ, instituting a holy monastery, that gave rise to the Order of the poor ladies.
