“Welcome to our site from the Poor Clares of New York”

It is the purpose of this web site to help guide you through any questions you may have on our religious life as a nun. Many of us have spent the majority of our lives in this vocation and we wish to pass on our knowledge to you. The consecrated life is a rewarding one and one that very few know much about.

Whether you are a student searching for information for school, or the relative of a loved one who is a nun, and are trying to understand her life – or even someone who feels a calling and is trying to find answers, we hope that you will find here some of the information you are seeking. We have searched the web, spoken to countless people and have compiled a list of many of the more pertinent questions we found. With our years of lived experience we have attempted to answer these questions as simply as possible on our post page. We will also continually explore new questions and update our blog where you will find information relating to our community life.
