Vow of Enclosure
Description [ edit ]
When a Poor Clare takes this vow, she may not leave the monastery except for doctor's appointments, civil duties, or emergencies. The sisters known as "extern sisters" do not take this vow in order to be able to handle some of the community's needs outside the papal enclosure.
