St Clare Garden
Eco Spirituality

COMING FALL 2023 the St Clare Garden will provide a place of stillness and serenity that compliments the Peace Path walking trail and the Cosmic Walk currently located on the grounds of the Wheaton Franciscans.

Amenities will include a large, shaded patio area for outdoor offerings with an adjacent lawn area for yoga and drumming. Secluded seating areas will provide space for journaling and quiet conversation in a tranquil nature setting that includes a water feature and artwork in honor of St Clare. Planning and design started in January 2021 with construction to begin this spring.

Landscaping will continue through summer 2023. Once completed a range of eco-spirituality and creative offerings will be available for individuals and groups in this new space that aligns with the mission of Tau Center.

Adjacent to Our Lady of Angels Motherhouse, the St Clare Garden will be a place of gathering and contemplation.
