It is again with great sadness that we tell you we have extended our cancellations to all May activities at the Franciscan Spiritual Center, Clare House and the hermitages.  In order to be fair to our May presenters and to those who are scheduled to be here it seemed important to give amble notice of the cancellations so they can plan accordingly.  Since we are told that we have not yet peaked as a nation it seems inevitable that our need for social isolation will continue into another month.  With an abundance of caution and concern for all, we believe this is the most prudent option.  With prayers for you and for all those who are suffering from COVID-19, those who care for them and all who are researching a vaccine and treatment options.  May God protect us and help us to grow from this unprecedented experience.

In an effort to keep the connection alive between us we have done the following:

  1. Made all online e-courses free — simply go to our E-Course tab and pick one (
  2. Updated our blog — go to the About Our Center Tab options and choose Blog (
  3. Updated all our Inspirational Videos under the Online Spirituality Tab ( .  It may take a bit for this page to load because there are many video clips.
  4. Working at keeping our Facebook Page a little more up-to-date (

We miss you terribly and wish that we could see you face to face.  During this time of  “sheltering in place”, we miss all the hugs and smiling faces.  This too will pass as they say.  In the meantime, please stay connected and let us know how you’re doing.
