Cloistered Dominican Nuns Corpus Christi Monastery

October Discernment Day – About Our Speakers

Each Come-and-See Day, we are blessed to have one of our priest friars and at least one student brother come and share with us about some aspect of discerning God’s will and their vocation stories.  This weekend, Father Anselm Ramelow, O.P. and Brother Andrew Dominic Yang, O.P. will be here to share from their knowledge and experience and answer your questions!


Father Anselm Ramelow is currently an Assistant Professor of Philosophy at the Dominican School of Philosophy and Theology in Berkeley.  Born and raised near Hamburg, Germany, while traveling through the United States, he felt drawn to the West Coast and, in 1996, entered the Western Province of the Order of Preachers.  His formal studies have included music, theology, history, art history, and philosophy.  As a professor, his regular courses are modern philosophy and contemporary philosophy; his elective courses have included “What is a Person?”, “Do We Have Free Will?”, “Miracles”, and “Philosophical Aesthetics” (philosophy of beauty). 

Father Anselm also engages in ongoing pastoral work through ongoing formation for the Dominican laity, spiritual direction, marriage preparation weekends for the diocese of Oakland, prison ministry, and other pastoral ministries.




Please pray for those who will be attending this Saturday’s “Come and See” Day.  If you are interested in attending an upcoming “Come and See” Day, please contact our vocation directress, Sister Joseph Marie, OP, at
