Description

Convent of the Precious Blood was built for the Congregation of the Sisters of the Precious blood in 1929 after gaining independence from the Canossian Congregation. The building served as private residence and summer retreat house for the house for Precious Blood Sisters. The building was a symbol of charity as it also served to be a source of education, social welfare and medical care for the community. Later, parts of the building was converted into an orphanage. Convent of the Precious Blood later encouraged the building of Precious BLood Hospital in 1937, materialised with the help of donations and efforts of Bishop Henry Valtorta.
