Yesterday, I attended the Corpus Christi Mass and Eucharistic procession at the Monastery of the Angels in Los Angeles. This community of Dominican sisters, tucked in the hills just below the Hollywood sign, opens its doors daily from 5 am to 5 pm to allow the public to join in prayer and adoration of the Blessed Sacrament.
Bishop Oscar Solis, our young Filipino auxiliary bishop, presided, and at the end of Mass he made a request for funds so that the sisters can repair their roof. The cost is estimated at $15,000. He asked those of us present to consider sending a donation directly to him, and he would see that the funds are given to the sisters.
Needless to say, the sisters are performing a unique service in the Archdiocese, and could use our support. If you’d like to make a donation, checks should be made payable to Monastery of the Angels and sent to:
