Poor Clares of Reparation and Adoration

Welcome graphic

***A Proposed Charism that will begin as Congregational Recluses for the CAMM/CCMM Education Division.***

The Poor Clares of Reparation and Adoration were originally an Episcopalian order, whose last member died in 2003.    What we propose here is a Roman Catholic Franciscan charism of reparation and adoration, inspired by the example of our Episcopalian brethren. 

In the spirit of Sts. Francis and Clare, the nuns will love the poor Jesus, and compassionate Him in the Blessed Sacrament, making reparation for sins against the Sacrament of Love, and adoring Him for those who do not, especially those who follow the Evil One.

The nuns will honor Mary as Our Lady of Pellevoisin who identified herself as the Mother of Mercies.  The small Pellevoisin/Sacred Heart scapular shown to the visionary will be worn under the nuns' habit.  Smaller versions will be propagated by the nuns.


The habit will be identical to that of the Poor Clare Colettine, only with a maroon tunic and navy blue veil.  A monstrance pendant will be worn around the neck, over the guimpe.

The edifice of the monastery will replicate the house of the visions in Pellevoisin, France.  The public chapel and nuns' choir will be based on the oratory of the Clerks of St. Viator in France.  The shrine of Our Lady of Pellevoisin in the nuns' new monastery will be built so that both the nuns and the faithful may pay homage simultaneously.



The nuns will be bi-ritual with a preference for the Mass in the Extraordinary Form (MEF/TLM); Gregorian Chant; and the Franciscan Crown of Our Lady's Seven Joys in Latin.  Other devotionals will include the Cross Prayer--extending one's arms in the form of Our Lord on the Cross and praying five Paters, Aves and Glorias, respectively, in honor of His Five Holy Wounds. 

Those who are of a schismatic, sedevacantist, or autocephalous mindset and feel called to this community are requested to enter into deep discernment.  Reconciliation with Rome will be prerequisite to making application.  May the Holy Ghost be your guide.
