Recent Events

The last few weeks have been rich with beautiful feasts and glorious celebrations.

On June 2 we celebrated our patronal feast of Corpus Christi. On this occasion fifteen of the Dominican Friars joined us in a magnificent tribute to Jesus in the Holy Eucharist, with a beautiful sung Mass followed by a procession and Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament.

A few days later there was the Feast of the Sacred Heart of Jesus. Again we had a beautiful Mass to celebrate the love of God incarnate in the person of the Man, Jesus. He loves us so much that He wants to live with us as a human person and experience the joys and sorrows, pains and pleasures that we experience in our ordinary daily life. He knows us and wants to be part of our normal activities.

On this feast of love we were privileged to have the First Mass of one of our new Dominican Priests, Father Dominic David Maichrowicz. Joining him for this joyous occasion was Brother Peter Junipero Hannah who is one of our two new Deacons. He and Father Dominic were ordained in the same ceremony the previous Friday at St. Dominic's in San Francisco. After the Mass the nuns joined the friars in the parlor for a delightful fraternal visit. We love to follow with our prayers the spiritual journey and ministry of our Brother Dominicans.
