Dominican Rite Solemn Mass for Year of Consecrated Life, May 16, 2015

The Dominican Nuns of Menlo Park, California, have asked me to announce:
Dominican Life in the 21st Century:
Solemn High Mass According to the Dominican Rite 
and Reflections on Dominican Life Today

Corpus Christi Monastery
In honor of the Year for Consecrated Life, the Dominican nuns of Corpus Christi Monastery, the friars of the Western Dominican Province, and the Corpus Christi chapter of Dominican Laity joyfully invites you to Dominican Life in the 21st Century, at 9:30 a.m. on Saturday, May 16, 2015, at Corpus Christi Monastery, 215 Oak Grove Avenue, Menlo Park, California.

The morning will begin with a Solemn High Mass according to the Dominican Rite; the celebrant will be Fr. Ambrose Sigman, O.P. Following Mass, the Dominican friars, nuns, and laity will present three short talks on Dominican life. A light reception will follow.

Founded by St. Dominic 800 years ago, the Order of Friars Preachers was commissioned to contemplate God and share with others the fruit of that contemplation, preaching the Gospel for the salvation of souls. Today, the sons and daughters of St. Dominic continue to embrace and live out that charism as religious friars and nuns, sisters and laity.
