Went on the tour with Sister Malinda. She was very informative and touched my soul. St. Rose Convent is beautiful and I would highly recommend it.

The nun who took us on a tour was very gracious. Not only did I receive a tour of the church, but was also shown a video. Then she also took us to see the archives which was phenomenal, and displayed the history of the church dating back many years. She talked about how there have been 2 people praying around the clock since the church opened, and how prayer requests can be submitted. Although this is not my denomination, I was impressed with the humility displayed and how much care the sisters here take to fulfill their mission. The stained glass is exceptional. This tour is best with no more than a small group.

This building a huge and beautiful and well worth a visit. The wood carving inside is marvelous and the sanctuary is gorgeous. I wish I had more time to spend there and would enjoy coming back.

First of all, this isn’t a place in which you can roam around freely. It is the home for several Franciscan Sisters and you must be accompanied. Having said that, Sister Fran gave us an excellent tour and history of the facility. It has two stunning chapels which were designed by Germans with beautiful stained glass crafted in Bavaria where the mosaics were also made. This amazing place has had perpetual round the clock prayers by at least two people going for over 140 years in a quiet, holy and beautiful chapel. It is only open to the public for limited hours (see the website for specific info). We very much enjoyed our visit.
