Long Description:
Located and serving the Paola community for over 100 years The Ursuline Sisters are facing the realism that the number of Sisters living here can no longer sustain the campus. In February 2008 it was announce that the Sisters would be merging with the Ursuline Sisters of Maple Mount, Kentucky. The 36+ acres are currently for sale. The 20 Sisters who resided here will be relocated by the Summer of 2009.
