When the Dominican Sisters arrived at Mission San Jose in 1891, they were welcomed by silvery olive trees. Every year, we share this blessing with our Boutique friends! You made that happen! 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. Unfortunately, many oils that you’ll find in your local supermarkets are marketed as extra virgin but are in fact, just blends of premium oil with lower quality oil. Planted on this sacred ground by Franciscan friars, the Sisters began processing the olives for their rich oil in 1894. The Dominican Sisters extra-virgin olive oil continues to be produced by mission-era trees and is sought by connoisseurs, shared with friends and distributed annually. The Sisters processed the olives for their rich oil 1894 to 1965. It’s time to plan your online visit to the 2020 Dominican Sisters Holiday Boutique!
