Monasterio de Santa Clara
This monastery is where nuns of the Order of Saint Clare of Assisi (usually called Poor Clares) lead a life of prayer and contemplation, having renounced the world and earthly possessions. The church is a lovely cream-colored building that is very much in the mold of Spanish-built mission churches in California, U.S.A. Carrying on an old tradition, people often come here with offerings (usually eggs) and ask the saintly nuns to pray for good weather.
alam ko po na lahat ng hiling ay mapag bibigyan nyo. alam ko din po na nasa tao ang gawa nasa diyos ang awa. Alam ko na pag bibiyan nyo din ang kahilingan ko. Di man ngayon umaasa po ako na malapit na. Di po ako bibitaw sa pananampalataya....... salamat po......

--- St. Claire I will never stop believing.. You and St. Jude will always be my patron... and God will always be my Saviour... Thank you St. Claire for listening... I will always BELIEVE... I PROMISE..
Dear St. Claire,
I'm so far away from you to visit your shrine so through this site I'd like to speak to you my beloved St. Claire. Thank you very much for all the help, assistance and intercession you did , do and still will be doing for me and my family. Through you I have faith that all my prayers, wishes and desires will be granted by our God Almighty and Lord Jesus Christ.
My husband and I are going to the Philippines this year. I humbly ask your intercession that we will be blessed with good weather, that we will be blessed with good health of mind and body, that we will be safe and protected on our trip before, during and after our vacation to the Philippines. I pray fervently that we have more than enough money for this trip. I also ask you to that no barriers or hindrance will come our way before , during and after this trip.
I ask these in Jesus'name. In the name of the Father, and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit . AMEN
Whether or not my petitions are answered according to my wish, I will endure to visit Monasterio de Santa Clara as long as I have time. St. Clare and her prayerful nuns are very good to me. They are my strength in times of my anxieties and doubts. Whenever i visit the place, I feel refreshed and enlightened by the grace of God and the Holy Spirit thru the never ending intercession of St. Clare and collective prayers of the Poor Clare Nuns. An excellent place indeed for deep prayers and meditation!!!
Maraming salamat po St. Claire sa patuloy nyo pong pag gabay sakin. Kahit wala pa po ang resulta. Alam ko pong hindi nyo po ako pababayaan dahil kayo po ng panginoon ang nagbibigay lakas loob sa akin. Masaya po ako dahil nakilala ko po kayo at nakabisita po ako sa tahanan nyo. I Love You St. Claire. Patuloy parin po akong magdadasal sa inyo dahil alam ko pong patuloy nyo po kaming gagabayan.
when i first went to the monastery, naligaw p'ko, mag isa lang po kasi akong pumunta at nagbabaka sakaling mapagbigyan ako sa petition ko, though me times n di ako nakakapunta due to my review for the board, i make sure naman na everytime na pupunta ako, may offering ako until i finished my 9days of praying to her. and luckily, my petition to her was granted, kakareceived ko lang ng result ng board khapon. and yes!!! thank you st. clare, u're one of the reason for my hapiness today... i will surely be back and be your devotee... :)
31 years ago I went to the monastery and just like other I wrote a petition for a success in my career. Now I'm getting close on my retirement as a nurse I could say that Saint Clare granted my prayers. Saint Clare guided and took care of me and my family. One of my requests from Saint Clare was to help me to bring my whole family here in Canada. My parents, brothers and sisters are all here and now they have their own families. I have wonderful children, a loving and good husband. Also now I am handling couple businesses in preparation for my retirement and for my children to work on. So far in good health. Thank you Saint Clare for answering all my prayers and petitions I requested 31 years ago. You did not forget me although at times I forgot my devotions to you. Thank you for always be there and be with me all the way and forever, amen.

Each time I paid a visit to the Monasterio de Santa Clara and gave my prayer intentions to the prayerful nuns, my prayer intentions are always answered. Every time I pray at the Church there is always a feeling of inner peace or serenity that my prayers will be answered and that God will always guide me in making the right decision in accordance to His Divine Providence. I thank you wholeheartedly St. Clare for your miraculous intercession! Blessed be God forever!
