Franciscan Sisters of Christian Charity invite young women, ages 20-35, to call on St. Clare's intercession as we anticipate her feast day on August 11. As you seek clarity in your own vocation, we are here to offer you three possible retreat experiences in the next weeks with the hope that these encounters with God may be of help to you in your own discernment journey. Please also know of our daily prayers for you.

Zoom Call to Pray with Saints Francis and Clare Retreat July 30-August 1
Immerse yourself into the prayer of Saints Francis and Clare at 6:30 PM CST each evening. Sister Anne Marie Lom offers conferences and individual appointments for spiritual direction when you are available. You will receive materials for use during your own prayer times throughout the days.
What you hold may you always hold.
What you do, may you always do and never abandon.
But with swift pace, light step and unswerving feet,
so that even your steps stir up no dust,
Go forward, the spirit of our God has called you.
-St. Clare of Assisi
