Dominican Rite Solemn Mass for All Souls, Menlo Park CA

I am pleased to announce that the Dominican Rite Mass usually celebrated on First Saturdays at the Western Dominican Province House of Studies, St. Albert the Great Priory, Oakland CA, will this month, on November 2, be a Solemn Mass for All Souls at Corpus Christi Monastery, the community of cloistered Dominican nuns in Menlo Park CA.

The celebrant and preacher will be Fr. Vincent Kelber, O.P., director of the St. Jude Shrine at St. Dominic's Church in San Francisco. The deacon will be Fr. Christopher Wetzel, O.P., parochial vicar of St. Dominic's Church, and the subdeacon will be Bro. Joseph Selinger, O.P., student of the Western Province. The music of the Mass will be by the nuns of the monastery and the student brothers from St. Albert's Priory, who will also serve the Mass.

Fr. Kelber  will also give a short reflection on praying for the holy souls in Purgatory. The nuns will host a reception in the monastery parlor after the Mass.

Corpus Christi Monastery is located at 215 Oak Grove Avenue, Menlo Park CA. There is ample parking at the monastery and on Oak Grove Avenue.

Any chance you might be live streaming the Mass or the talk?

Sadly, no. The nuns and student brothers do not have the needed equipment.

This was truly a very lovely mass. Well worth the drive. Thank you to Fr. Kelber, friars, nuns and student brothers for such a sacred and inspiring mass.
