Hi everyone. I'm new here to Phatmass. I will be entering the Poor Clare Colettines in Cleveland early in 2007. Their website is /www.poorclarecolettines-cleveland.org. They follow the Rule of St. Clare of Asissi strictly with 4 vows - 4th being vow of enclosure, barefeet, full habit and perpetual adoration of the Blessed Sacrament. Can't wait! I'm a late vocation - mid - late 40's. They are open to belated vocations. I have done much research with the Poor Clares, Carmelites and other orders when I started by discernment so I have a lot of knowledge of which orders are open to late vocations and in regards to married, divorced, with kids etc. for anyone wanting any information. Thanks. God Bless and Merry Christmas! Mary

I think any information you can provide for orders which accept older vocations (as myself) and other circumstances would be a blessings for many :D:

Congratulations on your entrance. May God bless you and St. Francis and St. Clare guide you on the path to His Heart :D:

Congradulations, you must be very excited, with your enterance date so close! I have been wondering, do the Pink Sisters have houses any where else in the US? The branch you are entering is the only one I have seen online, and I was wondering if there are more of them out there.

I dont know how update worhty this is, but I'll put it here anyway. Over April vacation I was going to go to Chicago with my youth group ( with is a once in a lifetime type thing for me) But I am going to ask my parents if I can not go and go to Buffalo instead. Nothing is really decieded yet, all in the planning stages, but I hope very much that I can go.

Just a recommondation for those who are putting their name down......i would suggest it would be best for those to put their name down if they forsure they are entering a religious order....that way....it doesn't....um.....make you more "depressed" if something were not to happen....however sometimes it is kind of fun to see where people would like to go....but yeah......random...i know.....but it is just from my own expereince....thats all!!!!

I think it's fine for most people to put down who they are discerning with. We are, after all, [i]discerning[/i].

Thank you STLMom and Shortnun for your lovely replies, I recieved a most beautiful letter from my Superior welcoming me, it was one of the most beautiful christmas gifts ever and such a great joy and honor to be serving my lord as a holy spirit adoration sister! Shortnun, it's quite possible I was one of the ladies you spoke of, I"ve been discerning with them for almost 3 years now, and after so much prayer and discernment, it's almost hard to believe that soon I'll be there, Oh how I cant' wait!! Yes it is a most beautiful chapel, I still remember all my prayer days there and my time in the observer program, my favorite is nocturnal adoration, and god love them for remaining in that neighborhood, that is actually one of the things that drew me there, was in this poor little neighborhood is this beautiful house of prayer and there is no better place for it then among the poor and some of the most lost souls, and yes they are building onto their convent, which is a great blessing, but they are in need of financial help, so please do keep them in your prayers! St. Joseph -Pray for Us! Please be assurred of my prayers for all of you!

God Bless You!

:clap: God bless you! This is wonderful. I went on a nun run there a while back... they referred to some discerning women looking to enter. You might have been one of the women we talked about!!! :shock: :)
It's a delightfully peaceful chapel, isn't it? And to think... not only have they stayed in that part of the city, but they're buying land and planning to expand!

Yes I am truly greatful to our dear lord and this community, my entrance date has been extended, I'm scheduled to enter on February 25th feast of Mother Mary Michael co-foundress of the order, as I needed to give my work 2 weeks notice and feel out of respect to the airline to continue working in january and then resign and also gives me time to finalize all my business aspects and close everything down, as many of you know and I'm now learning, there's alot to do! yes the pink sisters do have more houses, Philadelphia PA, Lincoln Nebraska, Corpus Christi Texas and St. Louis Missouri, as well as many others convents in the phillipines, argentina, germany etc, we are all under one superior General, our Mother House is in Steyl Holland, and so in the US St. Louis Mount Grace Convent is the provincial house and where all formation for the US providence takes place, once one takes vows she then could be transferred to any convent in the world, but the life is lived the same.

God Bless You!

I'm putting the brakes on the discernment process......so you might wish to bump me off the list at this point. I have some stuff I need to sort out.

Thanks,

> Pending entrance into Postulancy -- Spring 2007

A bit of a clarification -- its a definite entrance (i.e. I've been accepted to enter postulancy ... that was abundantly clear with the visit to Mexico).

However at this point *I think* its being delayed due to family issues (my mom is quite ill). Once I have a better idea of when I will let you know. I think it will still be 2007.

Please keep my family and my entrance in prayer. Thanks!

:) I am so pleased that have been accepted but sorry that you may have to delay this because of your Mom's illness. I will pray for you both. Edited by Jennirom
