Portiuncula in France
Saint Clare Community of Ban St. Martin
Saint Clare Community of Ban St. Martin hosts the elderly sisters for the Sector – “Portiuncula in France”. The French Sector manages this facility and thus allow their elderly but able-bodied Sisters to stay together and live a community life. At Saint Clare Community they receive medical diagnostic and treatments and their community life has been adapted to times of prayer, retreat, reflection. The facility staff also organizes games for the Sisters throughout the year, as well as a week-long vacation.
