1892 – Holy Rosary School

Sister Alphonsa O’Donnell, OSB
Sister Perpetua Pick, OSB

Sisters Alphonsa O’Donnell, Perpetua Pick, and Rosina Loecken arrived from Minnesota to staff the new Holy Rosary school in Tacoma, WA. Their first home was an old two-room house located nearby, but due to a leaky roof, they moved into the new school building and occupied the first floor as their residence. The second floor was used for the school.
