About this Exploration:

Sister's ConventThe Sisters of Saint Agnes from Fond du Lac, Wisconson, served the Munjor community and were teachers at the school from 1885 to 1967. For more than 40 years, a wood frame building was the sisters' residence until it became inadequate and the two story stone building you see today south of the church was completed in September 1930.

The sisters moved out of the old convent October 28, 1929, and temporarily lived in the home of Joseph B. Pfannenstiel. The old convent was torn down and construction began on the new home for the Sisters of St. Agnes. During the 38 years this building was used as the convent, there were 40 nuns who called it home.

Sister's ConventIn 1948, the arrangements with the parochial school and the unified school district changed. The nuns continued to teach at the Munjor School, but were now staff of the school district. When USD 489 decided to staff and operate the school as its own elementary school, the nuns discontinued their teaching arrangement, and in May 1967 vacated the convent. This building was then used as a home for the priests. Today the building is used for evening religious education classes for the Munjor children and the parish office is located on the lower level. Visitors are welcome to walk around the grounds of the church, convent and monastery to notice the detailed workmanship used with the limestone construction.
