Objectives -- St Francis


This is truly a transitional time for Clare Oasis. The Executive Team and the Board of Directors are committed to the initial Dream of Clare Oasis. 

The reality, for Clare Oasis Leadership, was the opportunity to experience the desert and hence, to come to know the deeper
value of The Oasis. The Clare Oasis Open Door and Open Heart Residency no longer existed. The beauty of the desert, is that in its simplicity it is multifaceted . For a period of time, we decided to just be...with the loss...with our contracted retreat and workshop commitments...with the questions...with the vision.


One would say that a desert is not an easy place to survive...but the Clare Oasis Leadership, by prayer and the grace of God,
learned to play in the sand. This time was a time of revelation...a time of potential...a time of creativity...a time of new beginnings.


The desert experience was an invitation to discovery and to gain wisdom: knowledge born of experience!
