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!

St. Joseph, Plymouth; Architect Edward Schulte


St. Joseph Church in Plymouth, Ohio, is one of the more distinctive mid-century modern designs in the Diocese. It is the work of Cincinnati architect Edward J. Schulte, who designed more than 88 churches in a career that spanned from 1921 to 1967. His work reflects the changing trends in art and architecture during that period; he assisted in designing St. Meinrad Abbey, much different than his later works.
