Our history

“You will be poor and you will be despised” Those were the words of Bishop Brindle to the group of women (Claire Ellerker, Her Mother and one of her sisters, another of her sisters, Sr. Mary Paul joined after) who undertook to help him with the poor and suffering adults, as well as children, in Leicester England on the Feast of Our Lady of Mt Carmel – 16th July 1908. 

They were to become Dominican Tertiaries, training under Fr Vincent McNabb O.P.  They took on the name of Corpus Christi Sisters.  The mission of the Corpus Christi Sisters was to undertake any work the Bishop asked of them and go anywhere they might be needed.

From England the Corpus Christi Sisters were invited to the USA and later to Trinidad, West Indies in 1919.
