St. Anne Convent

St. Anne Convent

St. Anne Convent is the home of the American Province of the Congregation of Divine Providence, a community of Roman Catholic Sisters. The convent houses the provincial offices of the congregation, the residences of two local communities, as well as Moye Spiritual Life Center. The convent is located in Melbourne, Kentucky. There are 140 members of the American Province of Sisters of Divine Providence, but the congregation also has provinces in France and Madagascar.

The convent was constructed in 1919 to replace the former Provincial House at Our Lady of Providence Academy in Newport and Mt. St. Martin's also in Newport.[1]

In the 1988 movie Rain Man, St. Anne Convent served as the backdrop of the fictitious Wallbrook mental institution.[2] Actors Tom Cruise and Dustin Hoffman appear in several scenes in front of the convent and traveling down its long oak-lined entrance.

On December 1, 2007, the convent announced that some of the trees would be cut down due to poor health, falling limbs, and the convent's inability to afford the annual maintenance. It was rumored that a private donor from Ft. Thomas, Kentucky, offered to pay the annual cost and prevent the trees from being cut down. Nevertheless, all of the trees were cut down. However, new trees were planted beside the old ones in 2008 and the hope is that one day they stand as tall as the old trees.

Roman Catholic bishop Ferdinand Brossart, of the Diocese of Covington, Kentucky, rests in the convent's cemetery.[3]

The convent's Moye Spiritual Life Center today is often used as a place for the high school and college students of Ohio, Kentucky, and the surrounding areas to hold Emmaus, Kairos, and other Christian retreats.[4] St. Anne Convent is known as a place of prayer, peace, and hospitality.
