The Holiday Boutique supports our Motherhouse home and senior Sisters.
Each year 90% of proceeds honor and help care for these dedicated women.

Mission Era Olive Orchard
In 1891 when the Dominican Sisters arrived at Mission San Jose, they were welcomed by silvery olive trees planted on these grounds by Franciscan friars. The Sisters processed the olives for their rich oil 1894 to 1965. Olive harvests resumed in 2000, engendering a spirit of gratitude for Earth's bounty.
Every year, we share this blessing with our Boutique friends! We cultivate the largest remaining grove of mission-era olive trees in California. Many hands tend, harvest and press our golden oil. We host an annual Olive Harvest open to all. This year's public Olive Harvest is November 3 from 9am-12pm with a thank you BBQ.
Our prized extra virgin Dominican Sisters Olive Oil is bottled by Dan Sciabica of Sciabica's California Olive Oil. Start a new tradition and share it with your friends!
