Sisters in the Congregation of St. Joseph have been a part of the West Park community for more than 125 years.
Now their future here has been ensured, as a new motherhouse has been completed at 3430 Rocky River Dr., just north of St. Joseph Academy.
The motherhouse includes private living quarters for about 20 nuns. The new structure is more environmentally-friendly than other buildings on the campus.
Apartments include private bathrooms and kitchens for each nun.
The motherhouse also has a new chapel and new dining room.
Part of the building includes River’s Edge, a spirituality and wellness ministry offering classes, programs, and services to the public.
A new yoga studio is now being used by the many yoga classes that are offered. For details, visit www.riversedgecleveland.com.
