DANVILLE — A convent in Montour County will soon be property of Geisinger Health System.

Officials with Geisinger announced Tuesday they are purchasing the Holy Family Convent in Danville.

The convent has been owned by the Sisters of Christian Charity of New Jersey since 1898.

About 60 retired sisters who live in the convent will be relocated to a new facility in the garden state.

Geisinger plans on using the convent for office space and parking.
