Marywood Convent / Pilgrim House


Above are two photos of Mary, Queen of the Angels convent in Marywood (sometimes called Frank or Thompson.) The building served as a convent for Sisters of the Precious Blood, then was later used as a Pilgrim House for visitors to nearby Sorrowful Mother Shrine. It still stands today, next to St. Gaspar's church, but has been privately owned for many years. Any additional details would be welcome -- please leave a note in the comments.  Thanks to Mike Czeczele for sharing!
