Sisters of St. Francis Open Their Doors to the Public
The schedule for tours are Tuesdays—May 26, June 30, July 28, August 18 and September 22, 2015, from 1-3 P.M.
A sparkling gold cross atop an orange/red dome has attracted many people from near and far to Our Lady of Angels Convent (OLAC), the motherhouse of the Sisters of St. Francis of Philadelphia (609 South Convent Rd, Aston, PA 19014-1207). We know that there are many more people who drive past the convent every day and wonder who and what exist behind those giant doors in the big castle-like structure. Here is your chance to find out. The Sisters of St. Francis invite you to tour the OLAC facility and chapel. The schedule for tours are Tuesdays—May 26, June 30, July 28, August 18 and September 22, 2015, from 1-3 P.M. Join us for a short historical presentation and a tour of the first floor buildings and chapel, followed by light refreshments and time for questions and answers. Your hosts will be Sr. Kathleen Parisi, OSF, and several other sisters who live at the motherhouse. In order to prepare for our guests, we ask that you call the receptionist at (610) 459-4125 to provide your name, phone number in case we have to cancel, and the number of family or friends who will attend. You can call Sr. Kathleen Parisi at (610) 558-7714 to select a date and time for a group tour for at least six people. Tours may be scheduled Monday through Friday.
