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 fundraise to build their new Monastery for Our Lady of Light at 1250 S. Bonnie Lane, in Watkins, Colorado.
A Reverse Raffle, Silent Auction, Dinner and Dance was held on Saturday, April 25, 2015 with over 200 people in attendance. We will coordinate additional events to raise the funds necessary to build Our Lady of Light Monastery.
It would be an honor for us to have you as a benefactor and a participant to ensure the Sister’s fundraiser is a success and your help in raising a significant amount of money to truly benefit their life and mission.
On behalf of the Capuchin Poor Clare Sisters and our volunteer committee we thank you for your time and consideration of donating to this worthy cause.
