On the feast of Our Lady of Fatima, Sister Mary Isabel of the Angels, OP, professed solemn vows as a cloistered nun in the Order of Preachers at Corpus Christi Monastery in Menlo Park.

“By the profession of her solemn vows, she gave herself as a spouse of Christ to live a life of prayer, work and sacrifice within the enclosure, for the love of God and the salvation of souls,” the community said.

In a message on their Facebook page, the Dominican nuns said, “The JOY of belonging completely to Christ! Join us in praying that many more souls will give their fiat to God for his glory and for the salvation of souls.”

Sister Mary Isabel began thinking she had a vocation as a school girl in Indonesia but went to college and then worked for a number of years as an accountant in Southern California. She researched religious orders on the Internet and first came to visit Corpus Christi Monastery in 2007, entering the monastery in 2009.
