Cloistered Dominican Nuns Corpus Christi Monastery

Who’s Behind the Grille?

If you’ve visited our chapel in the last week, particularly for Mass or Vespers, you may have noticed a few new faces.  Our community had the privilege of hosting the Council of the North American Association of Dominican Monasteries for a multi-day meeting, which ended on Friday.
