County Fair for the Poor Clares
The Friends of the Poor Clares invite you to a County Fair at Linus Hall at Our Lady of Angels parish on Sunday, June 14, from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. It will be a wonderful afternoon for the whole family, featuring Bobo the Clown and balloon animals, face painting, an ice cream truck, a cotton candy machine and plenty of games for the kids. A Chinese raffle, silent auction and mystery bags will keep the adults busy.
From 3:30 p.m. to 5:00 PM, the Poor Clares will welcome visitation at the convent. The guests will be able to talk with the cloistered nuns and see the interior of this marvelous century-old monastery.
Hundreds of grateful Clevelanders have turned to the Poor Clares in times of stress and sadness. This treasured institution helps one navigate through life by the kindness and prayers of the cloistered sisters.
This event is held once a year and is the biggest source of income for the monastery. Tickets are $25 per person or $60 for a family ticket. For more information, call 216-941-2820 or stop in the convent at 3501 Rocky River Drive, Cleveland.
