Poor Clare Colettines of the Monastery of Mary, Mother of the Church


The Poor Clare Colettines follow the reform begun by St. Colette of Corbie in 15th century France. They retain the traditional habit, night rising, perpetual fast and the observance of papal enclosure. They also continue to go barefoot as a sign of Gospel poverty and in witness to the transcendence of God.
