Living the Gospel Life through Prayer and Community

Through loving presence and service we foster personal and community growth as we respond to the needs of the church and the times.




We are a community of vowed women (Sisters) and covenant (associate) women and men, whose mission is to live the Gospel following the spirit of St. Francis and St. Clare of Assisi, and our foundress Mother M. Clara Pfaender. We are a welcoming community of faith striving together to be instruments of peace, hope and justice in our world today.  We invite you to join us as seekers – in prayer – in worship – in personal growth – in mission – in community.

Truly, truly, I say to you, a servant is not greater than his master, nor is a messenger greater than the one who sent him.

John 13:4-17

As they announce peace with their lips, let them be careful to have it even more within their own hearts.

TOR Rule IX: 30


Your prayer concerns are important to us, as a network of faith connecting, prayer for and uplifting one another. When you submit a prayer request, it will be posted on our Prayer Board outside of Our lady of the Angels Chapel where you will receive prayer and encouragement from our community.
