It involves the sale of the campus, and moving a shrine to recently canonized St. Marianne Cope, who began her ministries as a Sister of St. Francis, in Syracuse.<br /><br />The current campus on the corner of Court and Grant St. on Syracuse’s north side dates back to the 1860s, when a new order of Franciscan nuns bought the property. Over the past 150 years it’s been home to a convent, school, chapel and a day care, among other things.</p> Fri, 20 Dec 2013 13:50:25 +0000 Ellen Abbott 48865 at http://wrvo.org Sisters of St. Francis selling campus, moving St. Marianne Cope shrine Canonization of Marianne Cope brings changes to Syracuse motherhouse http://wrvo.org/post/canonization-marianne-cope-brings-changes-syracuse-motherhouse <p>At the Sisters of Saint Francis' motherhouse in Syracuse there is a museum and chapel dedicated to Mother Marianne Cope, who was canonized a saint in Rome on Sunday.
