Our  Mission

The Poor Clares of Montana, daughters of St. Clare and St. Francis of Assisi, are called to live the Holy Gospel in the contemporary Church. We are dedicated to a life of contemplative prayer in an enclosed community, dependent on God’s providence, providing a place where all are welcome to experience God’s presence and peace.

You are all part of our mission as you share your resources with our community. Your support enables us to serve the whole Church through our life of prayer. At the same time, as St. Paul says, “You will be enriched in every way by your generosity…” (2Cor.9:11)

The monastery building provides a setting for sharing our life of prayer with the people of God. Here all are welcome to pray with us in the chapel to find spiritual nourishment and peace. We have retreat accommodations for individuals who desire time and space for quiet and prayer. We also have meeting rooms that are available for Church-related groups.
