BEND, OR -- Construction crews recently broke ground on a 3,200-square foot convent at St. Francis Church in Bend; it's the first convent Central Oregon has had in 58 years. The new facility will be home to the Salesian Sisters of St. John Bosco, who will arrive from Texas to teach at St. Francis of Assisi Catholic School in the fall. 

 

The convent will feature six bedrooms, four bathrooms, a chapel, two laundry rooms, kitchen, dining and living areas. St. Francis principal Crystal Mooney says the project was made possible with multiple partners, including Redmond-based Hayden Homes and the Parish community.
 
It's expected to be finished in August.
