The following comes from an October 19 Orange County Register article by Brooke E. Seipel:

The Marywood Pastoral Campus, former home of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Orange, will be demolished in early 2016 to make way for a gated community of 40 single-family detached homes.

The campus, 2811 E. Villareal Drive, was built in 1961 and run by the Sisters of Providence as an all-girls Catholic high school. The Diocese of Orange purchased the property in 1976 for use as its central location, but after a 2013 move to Christ Cathedral – formerly Crystal Cathedral – the property was put up for sale.

Several features of the campus, such as stained glass windows and other decorative elements will be preserved by the diocese and the developer, New Home Co. For slideshow of the soon-to-be demolished Marywood Pastoral Campus, click here.

Doug Woodward, New Home Co. vice president, said he expects the homes will sell for about $1 million to nearly $2 million.
