From the annunciation to the resurrection, through the pilgrimage of faith that reached its climax at the foot of the cross, Mary persevered in contemplation of the mystery dwelling within her. (VDQ)

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.
A contemplative vocation
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.
