St. Mary’s convent in Avoca was razed on Monday, April 8.


Built in 1923, it was home to hundreds of sisters from the Immaculate Heart of Mary order.


A paved church parking lot is planned for the lot, with room for 30 to 50 cars.


Stell Enterprises is doing the demolition which should be complete in about a week.


The Rev. Phillip Sladicka, pastor of Our Lady of the Apostles Parish, said the building hasn’t seen any major use in about eight years. The four-story building had more than 20 small bedrooms, a loft, chapel and several living and community rooms.
