Poor Clare Federation

of St. Mary of the Angels

in Ireland and Scotland


My name is Sr. Francis and I am President of our Federation, and on behalf of all my Sisters, and myself,

I warmly welcome you to our Federation Website.  Here you will meet our Sisters in their various Monasteries:

Galway, Dublin, Carlow, Cork, Ennis, Drumshanbo, and one Monastery in Glasgow, Scotland,

Each Federated Monastery retains its own identity and juridical autonomy.


Our Federation is basically about sisterly support, help and spiritual renewal. We are a group of closely united Sisters

following the Rule of St. Clare in Gospel living, prayer, conversion, shared reflection on the Word of God,

joy and simplicity.

The Federation also organises various Meetings, and Courses for Ongoing Formation, and these are occasions which are

eagerly looked forward to.  Apart from the spiritual content, these are moments of togetherness where friendships

are forged, renewed and deepened.  Times of fun and laughter where cherished memories are stored forever

in grateful hearts!


The Federation has a Federal Council of three Sisters who assist me in the affairs of the Federation.

We also have a Religious Assistant who represents

the Holy See before the Federation, and helps it with his advice.

Thank you for reading about us,  and may God's blessing and protection be with you always.
