HOLYOKE, Mass. (WWLP)- The Sisters of St. Joseph of Springfield have entered a sale agreement for their Mont Marie property. A nursing home operation company, Tryko Partners LLC., plans to acquire the Holyoke property. Following a due diligence period now underway, the sale of the 52-acre campus is expected to close this fall.
SSJ Springfield plans to retain use of portions of the Mont Marie property, including its Chapel and cemetery, through a lease agreement. Sisters currently living in the Health Care Center and in the senior residences will continue to do so.
Sisters living in the retirement wing of the mother house have been relocated to housing facilities provided by the Sisters of St. Joseph of Boston and the Daughters of the Heart of Mary in Holyoke.
By fall, the congregational offices will be moved to the former Our Lady of Hope rectory in Springfield.
