In 2018 we moved to the former Franciscan Friary (San Damiano), literally across the street from our previous monastery. We are still located in the beautiful Cowichan Valley, surrounded by tall evergreens as well as some deciduous trees. This beauty of creation gives our prayer a uniquely Franciscan quality. As St. Clare wished, most of our property is undeveloped and uncultivated except for our beautiful Peace Garden at the front.
Our setting provides a natural enclosure where we live together as sisters whose lives are centered on seeking God. We pray, work, play together always striving to create a harmony that will foster the growth of each person and be a positive energy to the world around us.
In 2012, for our 100th Anniversary we were interviewed for All Points West, a CBC Radio Program hosted by Joanne Roberts. If you would like to hear this short radio program, please click on the play button:
