"Do tej najsłodszej Matki przylgnij, porodziła Ona Syna, którego niebiosa
nie mogły ogarnąć, a Ona zamknęła Go i nosiła w swym maleńkim, świętym, dziewiczym łonie."

Monastery with a View of Heaven
In the year 1245, Salomea Piastowna (1212-1268), the daughter of a Polish Prince Leszek Bialy and the sister of Prince Boleslaw Wstydliwy, invited the sisters from the Klaryski convent into the town of Sandomierz, Poland. With the blessing of Bishop Prandota of Krakow, Salomea became the first Nun of Klaryski in Poland. In the year 2007, after almost 800 years of absence from Sandomierz, the sisters of Klaryski returned to Sandomierz to build a new monastery.
The sisters of Klaryski are in urgent need of financial support to build their new monastery in Sandomierz. They are calling on Polish Catholics and all Christians with a compassionate spirit and strong moral ethic to help them continue their prayerful mission, and complete the building of the monastery. The sisters have always been involved in many worthy cases and have helped anyone who needed them. Now the sisters need us.
The Life of Salomea Piastowna
As a young woman, Salomea married Hungarian Prince Koloman. In the year 1241, she became a widow when her husband died in a battle with the Tatars. After his death, she returned to Sandomierz and brought the Klaryski sisters from a convent in Prague. Salomea Piastowna entered the Klaryski convent. She died in the year 1268 and was buried in Krakow in St. Francis Church. She was beatified to sainthood in the year 1673 by Pope Clement X.
Return to Sandomierz
In 1996, the Diocese of Krakow established the new foundation of the monastery for the Klaryski sisters in Sandomierz. Ten years later the Bishop of Sandomierz, Andrzej Dziega, visiting the Skaryszew monastery in the vigil of Saint Clara’s Day, made a decision that the Klaryski sisters shall return to Sandomierz and build their new monastery. On June 12, 2007 the sisters officially moved back to Sandomierz. The Bishop of Sandomierz gave the six sisters a small parcel of land for a temporary accommodation and gardening while the monastery is being built. The sisters are sharing their living space with Sister Faustyna form Hungary.
Monastery for God’s Glory
Once the sisters moved back to Sandomierz, they immediately made the necessary arrangements for the design and construction of the new monastery. Building of the monastery began in March of 2008. The cost of the construction is enormous, and the sisters of Klaryski depend only on public donations.
The sisters spend much of their time in deep prayer. How effective are their prayers? Those that have asked the sisters of Klaryski for specific prayer requests know best, especially the people of Sandomierz.
The new monastery in Sandomierz will not only be a building with a beautiful view of the old city, but, it will be the monastery with the view of Heaven.
