“Praised be Jesus Christ”

 

You are very welcome to our website. We, the Poor Clare Sisters of College Road, Cork, are part of the Franciscan family, followers of St. Francis of Assisi, and we are so pleased that our Holy Father Pope Francis has taken the name of Francis! St. Francis inspired and guided St. Clare who founded our Order of Sisters in Italy in 1212. Our monastery here in Cork was founded in 1914.

As enclosed Sisters, dedicated to the contemplative life, we assure you of our prayers. May God bless and protect you this day.

We hope you enjoy our website, where you can read about St. Clare, St. Francis and St. Colette, about how Poor Clare life started in Cork, how we spend our day and more!

May the Lord bless you and keep you.

The Poor Clare Sisters

The Lord has loved you with an everlasting love.
Jer. 31:3 

Visiting Times

As many of our regular callers know, we close to visitors from November 1st until after Christmas. We also close during Lent, as well as for the week before Pentecost.
For the rest of the year a Sister is available to the public, from Tuesday to Sunday inclusive, in the morning from 10.30 am to 11.30 am and in the afternoon from 2 pm to 4 pm.
People are very welcome to call during those times to ask for prayers or to share a worry or concern.

On the First Sunday of each month we are also closed for our monthly retreat day.

"In Our Own Words"

Listen to the Radio Programme "Where The Road Takes Me."  The story, in three parts: Part 1, Part 2 and Part 3, describes our history, life, vocation and work over the last one hundred years in College Road.
