St. Clare, the daughter of a wealthy couple, lived in Assisi at the same time as St. Francis. She was inspired by the simple, joyful life of Francis Bernadone, and left her home in secret to follow in his style of living.
The influence of St. Clare has touched the hearts of the Poor Clares throughout the world as well as many others in her simplicity and love. As a contemplative, she sought silence and this retreat will include extended periods of silence and prayer. This retreat will help Secular Franciscans and any others interested to discover new insights into her spirituality and care. Fr. Henry Beck OFM is a new member of the staff and we look forward to his input and guidance. You can register online, call 575 524-3688 to register, or click here for a brochure
