Cloistered Dominican Nuns Corpus Christi Monastery

Christmas Preparation In The Monastery!

For the past few weeks the monastery has been in a quiet spiritual preparation for Christmas whereas most of the outside world is immersed in a red and green tinsel frenzy since Halloween.  We did not start our mad dash decorating and baking until this past Monday.  Here are some pictures of our sisters in action…
