St. Rose Complex Renovation


Renovations are underway at St. Rose Convent and the Franciscan Spirituality Center. The Franciscan Spirituality Center will continue to provide programming and services during renovation. No financial donations to the FSC will used to pay for the renovation work.


The Franciscan Spirituality Center renovations will include increased accessibility for people of all abilities, additional bedrooms—all private, with bathrooms—for program and retreat guests, expanded programming space, additional parking and updated technology. Additionally, the private, exterior courtyard will be enhanced and become an inspirational space for healing body and mind.

Sustainable design practices that are environmentally responsible will be used, including high-efficiency heating and cooling systems, low-consumption water fixtures, high- efficiency site lighting and sustainable building materials (high-recycle content). Existing features and materials will be re-used and incorporated into the new design, reducing the amount of new goods purchased.


The schedule (subject to change):

St. Rose Complex/Franciscan Way wing: April 2019-Summer 2020
St. Rose Complex/Market Street wing: September 2020-December 2020 
Franciscan Spirituality Center: Late 2020-Summer 2021


Guests may still visit the Mary of the Angels Chapel, and Perpetual Adoration will continue, uninterrupted, throughout the project. The chapels will remain untouched during renovation.


All guests (FSC and FSPA) should use the 920 Market Street entrance or, if requiring elevator access or wheelchair accessibility, the 912 Market Street entrance.
