This special Mass on the Solemnity of Corpus Christi - the Body and Blood of Christ- will be offered for the intentions of our benefactors, family, friends, altar bread customers and their parishioners who help support our life of prayer and contemplation. You may also send in your petitions to be placed on the Altar on Corpus Christi Sunday or email us at: DominicanNuns@nunsmenlo.org
Jesus...gives himself to us in the Eucharist, shares in our journey, indeed he makes himself food, the true food that sustains our life also in moments when the road becomes hard-going and obstacles slow our steps. And in the Eucharist the Lord makes us walk on his road, that of service, of sharing, of giving..." (Pope Franics' homily on the Feast of Corpus Christi.)
