The Grounds 

The Grounds at Passionist Nuns - Clarks Summit are very peaceful and beautiful. Our skilled maintenance staff works very hard to keep it in pristine shape so all visitors can have a pleasureable viewing and walking experience. Since we are in a rural area, you may see many squirrels, birds and deer walking around, but also on rare occasions, bear and bobcat have been seen. We hope that you get as much joy seeing the grounds as we do maintaining them.
