Poor Clare Colettines, Bulwell, Nottingham
Behind the Church of Our Lady of Perpetual Succour, Brooklyn Road NG6 9ET
Down in the plains of Assisi there is a large church dedicated to ‘Our Lady of the Angels’. Nestled inside this building is a tiny little church, the Portiuncula, literally ‘the little portion’. It looks enchanting and magical, as though it holds a secret, it also speaks of vulnerability as the walls of the bigger church rise to protect it.
It was the church where Francis welcomed many of the first brothers into the order and one little sister, Clare. The secret it holds is our beginnings, the little poor ones. We are all poor, we all need the protection of God’s mercy, that is our vulnerability, something that our brother and father Francis understood only too well.
Can we invite you to our celebration, Friday 2 August 2019. Sacrament of Reconciliation available 5pm onwards. Prayers for the Portiuncula Pardon and Holy Mass 6pm
This is our logo. Marian House is built like two houses side by side, in front is an open door.
The tree shaped tau is for Francis - and Nottingham forest.
The rainbow is for the many cultures and nations from which the Lord called us.
Marian House whose roofs form an M shape is being carried by the Holy Spirit, which is Nottingham’s original dedication. Since ours is Mary, we feel that together we form the Annunciation

Would you like us to join you in prayer for something special?
Many people want to be prayed for because they long to conceive a child, are expecting one or have sick children. Read about Saint Colette and the babies (we are not Colettines for nothing!)
Part of these pages constitute a prayerful pilgrimage with music and pictures round the life of the Lord Jesus, Mary, his saints, some popes and others of his friends - there are lots of stories.
Would you like a bit of support learning to pray the scriptures?
We have pages for Kids and a Kid's Blog: Anezka's nest. There is also a special Prayerline for Kids
Would you like to know little abour Marian House (Us)? and would you like to join the hundreds of men and women who share our life of prayer in the every-day world - the Littlehearts and Claresharers. 'Littlehearts' get a daily prayer or meditation, and the various prayerlines are for all.
Or, do you feel the Lord may be inviting you to live our life - the invitation is only for ladies!!
Down at the bottom, there are craft galleries, archives and a map of how to get here with full contact details.
And there is a lot more, have a wander round.....
