San Damiano MonasterySan Damiano Monastery
Celebrates 25 Years

Through the ages, people of every culture have engaged in religious practices that have provided them with comfort and a means by which to be closer to God. What that means is different from one belief system to the next, but for the Sisters of Poor Clare, celebrating their 25th year here on Fort Myers Beach at the San Damiano Monastery, it means a life of prayer and contemplation. And whether you are a practicing Catholic or not, if you spend time with them, you will find that these women radiate a level of heartfelt love and devotion that literally illuminates the air around them.
