Groundbreaking construction

In June of that year, architects for the proposed convent and school were selected. Contracts for construction of the buildings were awarded on April 14, 1965, and construction began just six days later.

The official groundbreaking ceremony for the school and convent were held April 28, with Bishop Leech wielding the first shovelful of earth in the presence of joyous parishioners and welcoming members of the Rohrerstown community.
