Janua Caeli Retreat Day

  • Corpus Christi Monastery 215 Oak Grove Avenue Menlo Park, CA, 94025 United States (map)

Janua Caeli are days of retreat for single Catholic women between the ages of 18-38 who are not actively discerning a vocation, but desiring to learn more about and grow as Catholic women in today’s culture.  The day of retreat will include talks, Eucharistic Adoration, Mass and the Divine Office prayed with the Dominican nuns, and more!

The theme for our April 2018 Janua Caeli Retreat Day is “Fullness of Grace: How to Receive an Overabundance of God’s Gifts.”  Our retreat master is Rev. Quan Tran, priest for the Diocese of Orange in California and founder of Fullness of Grace, a ministry aimed at helping Catholics and other Christians grow in their spiritual life by better understanding supernatural grace, and how to gain an abundance of God's gifts by imitating the qualities of the Blessed Virgin Mary.  To learn more about Father Tran and the Fullness of Grace ministry, visit
