Dominican Rite Solemn Mass for All Souls, Menlo Park CA

I am pleased to announce that the Dominican Rite Mass usually celebrated on First Saturdays at the Western Dominican Province House of Studies at St Albert the Great Priory in Oakland, California, will this month, on November 2, be a Solemn Mass for All Souls at Corpus Christi Monastery, the community of cloistered Dominican nuns in Menlo Park.

The celebrant and preacher will be Fr. Vincent Kelber, O.P., director of the St Jude Shrine at St Dominic’s Church in San Francisco. The deacon will be Fr. Christopher Wetzel, O.P., parochial vicar of St Dominic’s Church, and the subdeacon will be Bro. Joseph Selinger, O.P., a student of the Western Province. The Mass will be sung by the nuns of the monastery and the student brothers from St Albert’s Priory, who will also serve.

Fr Kelber will also give a short reflection on praying for the holy souls in Purgatory. The nuns will host a reception in the monastery parlor after the Mass.

Corpus Christi Monastery is located at 215 Oak Grove Avenue, Menlo Park, California. There is ample parking at the monastery and on Oak Grove Avenue.
