Farewell Convent

Adieu Kloster

The Annunziata Convent in the Lower Austrian town of Eichgraben was founded in 1898 as the first Austrian branch of the order of the Franciscan Missionaries of Mary. This convent is now for sale - bad news for the 22 sisters who still live here and have spent the majority of their lives in this community property. But the convent is suffering from a lack of money, and above all from a shortage of new blood. By the end of April a new home needs to be found for the aged sisters. It seems clear that they will no longer be able to live under one roof. Their entry to the order was accompanied by vows of poverty, chastity and obedience.
