Work in progress:
St. Edward's Convent, Bar Harbor, Maine (now a private residence). Architect: Milton Stratton of Bar Harbor, 1917. Windows by the Century Stained Glass Works of Philadelphia, 1917.

St. Edward's was planned and funded by Louise Drexel Morrell (Mrs. Edward de Veau Morrell) whose sister, Saint Katharine Drexel, founded the Sisters of the Blessed Sacrament, the order associated with this convent.

The windows in the chapel represent the patron saints of Mrs. Morrell, her husband, and members of her family.

Together with the Ledgelawn Avenue rectory and St. Edward's School (now an apartment building) behind them on Shannon Way, the convent formed part of the complex of buildings associated with Holy Redeemer Catholic Church.
