Having read about the Pink Sisters at Built St. Louis, I knew I had to check out this bastion of peace in the middle of the College Hill neighborhood. The church is an odd mix of several styles, so it’s hard to really label it anything. But nonetheless, I greatly respect that the Sisters have stuck it out, even as the area around it has suffered over the last half century. Across the street is an overgrown forest, part of O’Fallon Park.
