Our Order of Capuchin Sisters
Our order of Capuchin Poor Clares professes the rule of Saint Clare, according to the spirit and ideals of the reform of the capuchins.
The rule springs from the Gospel and leads us to gospel living. Encourage us to live in simplicity, humility, holy poverty and holy unity.
We baked and sell Clarisas Cookies as a means of supporting our cloistered community whose primary existence is to raise prayers to God constantly on behalf of the Church.
To maintain the highest standards of excellence, we bake these delicious butter cookies from scratch, in small batches, using nothing but the finest ingredients. To order go to the link on the top page.
Our Community of Capuchin Sisters
The Capuchin Poor Clares came to Denver, Colorado in 1988.
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.
on November 17, 1988.
