In this undated photo, Sister Maria Christine drives a tractor on the grounds of the 11-acre cloistered monastery for Dominican Nuns of Corpus Christi in Menlo Park.

Nuns moved into the monastery beginning in April 1928, and continue to live the devotional life on the grounds of 212 Oak Grove Ave.
