Convent, Mary"s Flight into Egypt

I have a hard time typing so I cheated and scanned in the pages from a parish history written by my Mother, pertaining to the convent that stood at Egypt for many years,way ahead of my time. I can just remember the top floors being removed from it to remodel it into a residence, the chapel already long gone the remaining building has since been torn down and replaced with a home. Click on pictures to read story, it starts at top, the photo is only known pic of convent.

good luck, good read

last two lines are missing from article, here they are


"contentment, and joy in the Lord blossomed the year round in the hearts of the Sisters"

from Not With Silver or Gold, page 140

There is a similar structure still standing not far from Sorrowful Mother Shrine at Bellevue, OH, also one of Fr. Brunner's convents. This one was St. Mary of the Holy Angels, built in 1845. Looks like it is a private residence now.
