St. Bernard, New Washington

A general view of the complex, with the church and school to the left and the convent to the right. The rectory's on the other side of the church, but I understand it's not much to look at.
The entrance to the convent, dated 1917. The inscription says "l'abri des soeurs", which translates to something like "sisters' home." I rather like the sound of that.

Interesting that the convent has a French sign - I think that parish was very German. Maybe the sisters were French.
