Adoration is our apostolate

"We are a Cloistered Community of Contemplative Nuns, known as the Poor Clares of Perpetual Adoration.

"Eucharistic Adoration is our apostolate, for as our Foundress, Mother Marie of St. Claire, once said: 'We are adorers of the Most Blessed Sacrament and the purpose of our adoration is thanksgiving.' Essentially, we begin to do on earth what every blessed soul will do for all eternity: praise, adore, and offer thanksgiving to our God....

"(We are) taking the treasures of spirituality and love that we have been given (at our founding monastery in Alabama), and, with His grace, begin planting it anew in the desert of Arizona."

"What are the requirements of entering the Poor Clare of Perpetual Adoration at Our Lady of Solitude? You must be a single woman between the ages of 21 and 35, have a High School education, be a Catholic in good standing, (and) have good physical and psychological health."
