starCraft Workshop - Monday February 15th 10.30-3.30
You are welcome to join your little sisters experiencing wool crafts, mainly crochet and knitting, both for beginners and for the more advanced, who may be struggling with the mysterious language of knit and crochet patterns. It will be a homely and family occasion with some of our sisters. Please contact us if you would like to come, at community@poorclarestmd.org or phone 01244 531029. Tuition and help with other crafts may also be available, if there is something in the craft line you might like to share in - we may be able to help.

TMD apologises to their dear friends in US, Canada, India, Philippines and elsewhere, who it seems would also like to join us - be with us in spirit!!!

colHoly Mass and the Blessing of Saint Colette - Saturday February 6th 12 midday
This year’s family celebration will start with the Chaplet of St Colette at 12 midday and Holy Mass with St Colette's blessing will begin at 12.30.
St Colette is the heavenly patron of expectant mothers, those who wish to conceive a child, and children, especially those who are sick. The blessing is given with a tiny relic of St Colette's mantle mounted in a present day Poor Clare Colettine veil.
All are welcome to this Franciscan family celebration!

Every Saturday at 12.30 we pray the chaplet of our Holy Mother Saint Colette and have her blessing. All are welcome, regardless of creed or denomination to come and place their needs, joys and sorrows under her mantle. This fourteenth century woman is the patron saint of those who long to conceive, expectant parents, unborn life and the sick. She is a friend in heaven to all of us!


If you have not already met it, Ty Mam Duw has a section for younger readers. Young Claresite for Kids is also open to the under eighties in general, though perhaps they should be accompanied by a responsible child!

Kid's Cloister is for beginners - see if you can find anyone down there? The lad on the bar above is carrying his mother’s washing machine off - if this makes you curious visit Franscript, which also offers you a chance explore the Word of God with Saint Francis and may soon have an Advent Calendar. Or you could try Tony's Tales; Tony goes to St Charity's CP, Parable Lane, in the lovely Welsh village of Panticariad. Tony’s secretary is a mite busy at this time of the year but more adventures will appear soon. Jim is a little older than Tony, he can't see why his Dad sits on the roof when its time to go to Church….
Visit the kid's blog Anezka's Nest! and add your comments.

This is a very small beginning, but we thought you might like to share in some of our craft work.
There are sections on canvas stitching, beads and crochet. Please have a
look around if you would like.
