…… for making our bazaar so successful. All the delicious baked goods, and beautiful gifts you donated, and most of all your presence there, leave us very grateful. Everyone enjoyed themselves and the great bargains to be had there. May God bless you all.
Once again, we happily invite you to our annual bazaar. We appreciate your patronage, very much, as the proceeds help with the cost of heating this large building for a short while each day. Doors open from 9a.m. to 3 p.m. If you scroll down a bit there are pictures of the good time everyone had at last years bazaar.
We will have Sister Jo’s Irish Bread, as well as your favorite chocolate chip cookies, and other tasty treats the sisters are preparing for you. We are most grateful for your donations of baked goods, needlework, and hand grafts, as well as NEW items we can sell there. (We do not have room for used items in our limited space, but we are able to sell some donated items, especially religious items in out little lobby gift shop.)
The Poor Clares of Jamaica Plain, MA
On Saturday, August 25th, we celebrated 25 years of religious profession of our Abbess, Sister Mary Veronica of the Holy Spirit. It was a beautiful day that radiated Franciscan joy by all present.
Kim Marshall, all aglow as
she realized her dream,
entered as a postulant
on July 26th.
Her days are full, but happy, learning about Poor Clare life.
When she plays croquet, she plays to win. . . And she did!
We would like to invite you to attend our annual series of Masses, invoking the intercession of Saint Clare, which will be celebrated in our chapel on August 8, 9, & 10, at 7:00 P.M.
The Presider and Homilist will be Fr. Michael Ramos, OFM Cap.
If you are unable to attend the Triduum, please send us your intentions and we will include them in each Mass.
On August 11th, we will celebrate the Solemnity of St. Clare at 11:00 A.M. Won’t you join us for this special Mass in her honor ? All are welcome.
On June 6th, the Feast of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, we received Kimberly Todd as a member of our community. On this special day we invested her with the plain and simple habit of the Poor Clares with a rope for her waist. Her shining white veil is a temporary one as she prepares for the day she will exchange it for a black one – the day she makes vows for life. Kimberly received a new name to signify the new beginning of her journey into God. Now she is Sister Chiara Lucia of the Queenship of Mary.
