Poor Clare Assembly 2012

Today, Br Bryan and myself where privileged to be invited to the closing day of the Poor Clare Assembly held in Dalgan Park. Sisters from all over Ireland, Scotland, England and America where there. Mother Francis, former Abbess of the Poor Clare Monastery in Carlow, was elected as President of the Representative Group.

We shared in pray, food and a lot of laughs with these wonderful ladies, who are a powerhouse of prayer, peace, joy and positivity within the Franciscan movement and the Church. I never leave their company without being changed in some way. Thank God for them and may they be blessed in all they do.
