My aunt, Victoria Krolczyk, became a Catholic nun in the Felician order. The 1920 census shows her as an inmate at St. Joseph's Orphanage in Milwaukee, WI at age 13. That is around the time she entered the order. She wasn't an orphan as the family was living in Chicago at that time. She took the name of Sister Mary Fabiola. Was St. Joseph's both an orphanage and a convent ?
