Poor Clare Colettines -- Ellesmere, UK

Contact the Nuns


The life of the Colettines is not all prayer, work, and study!
The sisters have a joyful and warm family-type of community life, where each sister is accepted for who she is, not just what she can do.
The Colettines have a daily recreation time together, where they can talk, laugh, and relax.
They enjoy hobbies, handicraft and looking after the convent moggies.
No unnecessary work is done on Sundays.
The sisters can and do write letters to their families and friends.
Each sister is encouraged, but never forced, to use her talents and she will often discover new gifts she never knew she had.
