A Joyous Feast!

Last Sunday we celebrated our feast day - the Solemnity of Corpus Christi.  We were blessed to have so many of our friends and family from the surrounding community, and so many of our dear brothers in St. Dominic, join us in celebration!  The chapel was beautifully decorated with lilies donated by a benefactor. 

Public Chapel
Our Dominican friars who were able to be present included our chaplain, this year's novices from St. Dominic's in San Francisco, the Dominican priests serving at Stanford University, and priests and brothers from St. Albert's Priory in Oakland; Fr. Bryan Kromholtz, O.P. was the celebrant and homilist.  After Mass, the friars stayed for a wonderful visit!
Fr. Isaiah Mary Molano, O.P. processing with the Blessed Sacrament after Mass.

Benediction.
 The celebration continued that evening with more food and laughter.


 
 And a birthday party!  Sr. Mary Rose celebrated 92 years on Sunday.  Happy birthday, Sister!
 
Many thank you's to our friends, families, benefactors, and dear friars who, by sharing the day with us and giving time, treasure, talent and shared fellowship, made it that much more joy-filled and beautiful.  Deo gratias!
