What a special treat to see inside a cloister for the Dominican Nuns in Menlo Park, California! Sr. Joseph Marie, OP, takes us on a tour, including the chapel with heavenly singing, their common rooms, and their time of recreation! Three of the sisters share more about their own journey to the cloister and answer questions from discerners. You won't want to miss this experience!
