Two Dominican Sisters make professions

During the month of May, the Monastery of Corpus Christi in Menlo Park was blessed to have two sisters making professions.

What a wonderful way to console the Immaculate Heart of Mary during this Centennial of the Apparitions at Fatima. Sister Mary Isabel of the Angels, OP, made her solemn vows and Sister Marie Dominic of the Incarnate Word, OP, made her First Vows.

Both Sisters are a testament to the fact that, in time, God's grace and mercy will provide in great abundance. On these two occasions, our two sisters and community was simply overwhelmed with joy and generous support from our friends, family and local community.

We are women who are deeply touched by the Transcendent in our lives and are intensely and continuously in search of intimate union with the Divine. At the same time, in imitating the life of our Holy Father St. Dominic who bore the sinners, the downtrodden and the afflicted in the compassion of his heart, we are sensitized to the anguish and needs of our world, and strongly believe that this kind of living for God alone will make a difference.

If you or someone you know may have a call to live this contemplative life of earnestly seeking the face of God and to embrace the world through intercessory prayer and sacrifices, please contact Sister Joseph Marie, OP, vocation directress at vocations@nunsmenlo.org to learn more about opportunities to a Come and See offered three times a year in July, October and January.
