Cloistered Dominican Nuns Corpus Christi Monastery

Author Archives: Dominicannuns@nunsmenlo.org

We are Dominican Contemplative Nuns of the Order of Preachers, founded by st. Dominic in 1206. 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.
