Many people are under the impression that only the Roman Catholic Church has religious orders for men and women. Such is not the case. The Anglican or Episcopal Church has had religious orders for over a hundred years. They are constantly growing in numbers and this, of course, necessitates the building of more convents and monasteries. It is my desire to design a convent for Santa Fe, New Mexico for the nuns known as the Poor Clares. I chose Santa Fe because i want this to be a problem in regionalism. I chose the Poor Clares because they are a completely enclosed order and there are not enough Episcopalians in Santa Fe to warrant having teaching or nursing sisters.
