GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — The Grand Rapids Dominican Sisters are getting ready to say goodbye to the place they’ve called home for 100 years.

The Sisters are in the last stages of moving out of Marywood off of Fulton Street.

“The Tabernacle is gone, and that was hard to see that go. The Tabernacle was in that little cove,” Sister Mary Navarre told FOX 17.

Navarre is on one last walk through the Marywood Chapel Wednesday. It’s a place she prayed at almost twice a day for close to 60 years.

For the past century, the Dominican Sisters have called this place home, which housed around 800 sisters at its peak.
