Chapel Renovation

How lovely is your dwelling place Lord God of Hosts..”

Psalm 84


Corpus Christi Monastery Chapel Renovation

The Dominican nuns of Corpus Christi Monastery of the Bronx have been blessed to live in this venerable old stone monastery that was built in 1889. As with any building, our lovely cloister and public chapel are in need of some repair and painting. The projected cost of this project is $150,000. Therefore, it is necessary for our community to reach out to the public for assistance. Our monastery is an oasis of prayer for the metropolitan area of New York and beyond. Many people come to our chapel and our retreat house to spend some time in prayer and adoration before Our Lord in the Blessed Sacrament. We, as Dominican nuns, are privileged to have exposition of the Blessed Sacrament daily. We entrust this project to the intercession of St. Joseph.

Our life as Dominican nuns is to console the Heart of Christ, to pray for priests and seminarians, and to intercede for the salvation souls and the needs of the world which are so dire at this time. Please feel free to send us your intentions as we place your needs before the Lord in the Blessed Sacrament.
