  • Through prayer and song, the sisters of the Poor Clares Monastery in Great Falls are sending a message of hope in a time of uncertainty. The sisters have been praying for citizens and visitors to Great Falls and Montana since they started their community, and on Monday, they wanted to continue that tradition outside, especially for nearby healthcare workers. For the most part, the Poor Clares live a closed life, so stay at home directives don't affect them too much. Sister Judith's advice to people who find themselves at home these days more than usual is to live in the now. "You have to be centered in what's going on right now and not planning ahead to what I would be doing if I was at work or if I was at school."
  • In the coming weeks and months, we'll be focusing on “The Rebound: Montana.” It is a series of reports, videos, articles, and information that will help you navigate the "rebound" from COVID-19.
