The St. Joseph's Convent Motherhouse is located on Stevens Avenue, just a short walk from the church and the school we children attended in our youth. My oldest sister graduated from Cathedral High School in the city center and had to take a bus each day to get there. The Sisters of Mercy, who taught at our elementary school and at her high school, lived here in the convent. I remember, once or twice, going there with Mom to visit my dad's aunt Sister Dolores. Once we found her, along with about twenty other nuns, watching a movie in their movie theater. That many in one room... it's an image, I still can't shake.
*Anyway, this morning Happy Birthday Wishes going out to CAM, living in Lakeland! I thought you'd enjoy this photographic trip to your past!
