Stories from Home: Mary Manning Walsh Home

Sister Helena - Saturday, January 26, 2019

Story Contributor: Mother Mark Louis Anne, O.Carm.

On January 5, an open house and blessing was held to celebrate the completion of the renovation to the convent at Mary Manning Walsh Home. Previously, the convent occupied space on both the 15 th and 16th floor of the facility. Now the convent is located only on the 16 th floor, which allowed for the expansion of the Dawn Green Hospice unit to encompass the whole 15 th floor. A win-win for the convent and the facility! Fr. Simeon blessed the renovated space to the delight of the Sisters, who have lived with the chaos of renovation for a very long time. The refectory and community room were recreated on the 16 th floor, and the Sisters’ rooms made more barrier free. A spa room was also added to allow for handicap accessible bathing. We ask God’s blessings on this lovely space and all who helped create it.
