It was a festive night full of fun, food, dancing and lots of camaraderie as nearly a full house of supporters gathered at Denver’s Police Protective Events Center July 23rd to support the relocation of Capuchin Poor Claire Sisters of St. Patrick’s Church. Lots of prizes were given away to attendees as it seemed most everyone won something. There was also a large amount of auction items available. Joan Lucero along with a number of volunteers did a wonderful job in putting this successful event together.
The Capuchin Poor Clare Sisters came to Denver on November 17, 1988 to start the Monastery of Our Lady of Light. The Sisters established the Monastery that is connected to St. Patrick’s Church located at 3325 Pecos Street, Denver, Colorado 80211. The sisters are a cloistered, contemplative order that live in a hidden life of prayer and poverty. They support themselves by making cards, jewelry, baking and sell the Clarisas Cookies.
A Committee of volunteers is helping the Sisters raise funds to build their new Monastery for Our Lady of Light at 1250 S. Bonnie Lane, in Watkins, Colorado
