Poor Clares of Chesterfield, NJ

Our network of Franciscans continues to grow.  We visited the Poor Clare Monastery at Chesterfield, NJ and celebrated Mass, enjoyed lunch, and said mid-day prayer with the lovely sisters.  The Poor Clares spend much of their time praying for us, the Franciscan family, and the rest of the world, so we are truly indebted to them.  Nowadays, it seems like the contemplative life is greatly undervalued – however, spending the day with the sisters illuminated the importance of their apostolate.
