Celebrating Corpus Christi Sunday
On Corpus Christi Sunday, Dominican family, friends, and benefactors gathered at the monastery to celebrate with us our patronal feast day. The festivities began with the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. The principal celebrant and homilist was Father Andrew Opsahl, O.P. Father Andy is one of the newly ordained priests for the Western Dominican Province. He was joined at the altar by many of our Dominican friars, including Bishop Robert Christian, O.P., auxiliary bishop for the Archdiocese of San Francisco, and Father Stephen Maria Lopez, O.P., student master for the Western Dominican Province.
Immediately following Mass was a Eucharistic Procession and Benediction. After the beautiful and solemn celebration of the Eucharist, a reception was held in the parlor for everyone. It was a delight and joy to share this special day with all our dear ones. And it is a day that will be particularly poignant in our hearts and minds with the sudden passing of Bishop Robert Christian.
Thank you to everyone who joined us in celebrating and giving thanks for the life, love, and many graces God has poured out on us.
