Capuchin Sisters of Nazareth

Mother of the Eucharist Convent, Bastress, Pennsylvania

The Capuchin Sisters of Nazareth is a Catholic Franciscan community of women religious who are apostolic contemplatives.

Following the poor, humble life of the Poverello of Assisi, St. Francis, and in union with the spirit of the Capuchin branch of the Franciscan order, the sisters strive to live a joyful, simple lifestyle. So, "poor in fact but rich in spirit", they entrust themselves to Divine Providence.

The Capuchin Sisters' prayer life is centered on Jesus Christ in the Eucharist. Mass and Eucharistic Holy Hours are part of their daily life. They also pray together, at the prescribed hours, the beautiful prayer of the Roman Catholic Church: the Liturgy of the Hours. In this way, by the lifting up of their voices in song and their minds in prayer throughout the day, God is constantly being praised in their convents.


The sisters also pray daily for the intentions of the world, for the Holy Father and all Bishops, priests, and deacons, and for all those who ask for their prayers. Taking their call and consecration seriously, they strive to bring to their Spouse, Jesus Christ, all the pain, poverty, and sickness of our empty world, so that it may be filled with His divine grace and goodness.
