One of the greatest joys of FrancisCorps is the prayer, love and support we receive from the Poor Clare nuns of New Jersey. These amazing Franciscan women are the spiritual backbone of our organization. We could not do what we do without their prayer.
One of the Poor Clares and former abbess of the monastery, Sister Claire Andre, OSC is in hospital with kidney failure. Claire Andre is an amazing example for us and along with her other sisters has been a source of joy and support for so many of our FrancisCorps volunteers and the friars and sisters. Please pray for her and for her community for the Grace of healing and peace as they face the time they have together. Please also pray for the current abbess, Sr. Miriam, that she may have the wisdom to guide her community during this challenging time.
We love you Claire Andre! We love you all, dear sisters!
