“Take the tour!”
Reviewed 9 July 2012

I took my dad here as a Father's Day trip since he loves to tour churches, and we were not disappointed. The beauty of the chapel as well as learning about the life of the sisters make this a worthwhile stop in the area.

“WOW!”
Reviewed 2 July 2012

Not everyone would think to visit a convent on their trip, but whether you're religious or not, this place is a must see just for the beautiful architecture! Complete with high arches, hand-painted, stained glass windows, a stunning pipe organ with over 1,000 pipes, balconies, Italian marble, hand-carved pews, and immaculate gardens, this place is just beautiful.

My great aunt belonged to the Franciscan Sisters and her funeral was held in this convent in 2006. I had not been back since 2006, and this time, it was nice to be there for something other than a sad occasion and get to enjoy the building and learn about its history. The Sisters are very knowledgeable and will treat you with hospitality.

“Well worth a visit!”
Reviewed 1 July 2012

Beautiful chapel and Sister Lydia gave us a very informative tour.........if you love old architecture, you have to see it! The grounds and gardens are immaculately kept and it was a very peaceful place to rest and take pictures before leaving.
