Our mission as Capuchin Poor Clares is to live the Gospel.    
We live our contemplative life in a cloistered community, joyfully embracing a life of poverty and fraternity. Our cloister is a visible sign of our total consecration to God.

OF THE MONASTERY OF OUR LADY OF LIGHT

 

On November 17, 1988 the Capuchin Poor Clares came to Denver, Colorado.

After a time in prayer and reflection, a number of Sisters volunteered for the new community in Denver,

to establish Our Lady of Light Monastery at the former rectory

  of St. Patrick’s Church at 33rd & Pecos.

NEW MONASTERY

YEAR OF MERCY

“As the Father has sent me, even so I send you”. After saying this, he makes the gesture of breathing on them and adds: “Receive the Holy Spirit. If you forgive the sins of any, they are forgiven” (vv. 21-23). This is the meaning of the mercy that is presented on the very day of Jesus’ Resurrection as the forgiveness of sins. The Risen Jesus passed on to his Church, as her first task, his own mission of bringing to all the concrete message of forgiveness. This is the first task: to announce forgiveness. This visible sign of his mercy brings with it peace of heart and joy of the renewed encounter with the Lord.   ( Pope Francis)
OUR LADY OF LIGHT  PATRONESS OF THE MONASTERY

Place your mind in the mirror of eternity; Place your soul in the splendor of glory; Place your heart in the figure of the divine substance;And, through contemplation, transform your entire being into the image of the Divine One himself, So that you, yourself, may also experience what his friends experience when they taste the hidden sweetness that God alone has kept from the beginning For those who love him. ( Saint Clare)
