What are you looking for?
Would you like us to join you in prayer for something special?
Many people want to be prayed for because they long to conceive a child, are expecting one or have sick children. Read about Saint Colette and the babies (we are not Colettines for nothing!)
Part of these pages constitute a prayerful pilgrimage with music and pictures round the life of the Lord Jesus, Mary, his saints, some popes and others of his friends - there are lots of stories.
Would you like a bit of support learning to pray the scriptures?
We have pages for Kids and a Kid's Blog: Anezka's nest. There is also a special Prayerline for Kids
Woulld you like to know little abour Ty Mam Duw (Us)? and would you like to join the hundreds of men and women who share our life of prayer in the every-day world - the Sharers?
Or, do you feel the Lord may be inviting you to live our life - the invitation is only for ladies!!
'Littlehearts' get a daily prayer or meditation, and the various prayerlines are for all.
Nervously, we have opened our first small shop: Clare trade. We were no end encouraged to sell something on the first day it went up!
Down at the bottom, there are craft galleries, archives and a map of how to get here with full contact details.
And there is a lot more....
Our life is like an L shape. From one side we receive the seeds of life from God and the grace to nurture them, from the other, the joys and sorrow of our world which we take into our life and request God’s Spirit to come and breathe new hope, consolation and healing into the hearts and lives of our brothers and sisters.
We live a community life built on the gospel, reaching out to our sisters in our family life together.
Would you like to place your hands in ours, and join our pilgrimage through prayer to give a purpose to existence? Shall we look beyond ourselves, join hands with the suffering and needy in our world and create a caring community through prayer?
There is much in our lives to which there is no practical solution, to which prayer is the only answer. This website is an encouragement to search for the Giver of Life; the one who can recreate the mess we’ve made, into something beautiful.
First Sunday of Advent at

We build too many walls and not enough bridges.
We build walls to protect ourselves from fear of what is on the other side, which may be out of control or may make demands on us we don’t want to face. Walls by their nature isolate us from others.
You might want to say that your Poor Clares have built themselves a wall, that they have separated themselves, in one way, from the rest of the world. What can they tell us about bridges?
Some of our sisters might even say that when they first entered the monastery they felt the separation from what they had left behind very keenly, yet with time, that changes. The bridges thatwe build in our community, the bridges of simply doing things together, the bridges of diverse people learning to live together, singing praises together, working together, being creative together, being compassionate and forgiving and accepting each other’s differences - these are the bridges of grace that through the mercy of God flow out to those who may never know our names or faces; may not even know we exist, but to whom God will give the gift of Life.
We are inviting you to live our life where you are - and create a civilisation of love and acceptance.
Bridges are not just the domain of your Poor Clares, they are bridges we can all build. The carol service told us something about how we might set out to build a bridge that will change the world. What we share is what we try to live. Incidentally everyone went home with a peace dove made by the sisters.
