Presently the Convent houses Mother Patrizia and eight (or nine) Sisters, all from other parts of the world. The Convent is also a guest house for anybody (25 beds), and the friendly Sisters take good care of their guests.

The interior of the church. On the original drawings the church was much smaller, intended for the Sisters and the guests only. However, soon the Catholic church in Trondheim has to be rebuilt, and the bishop wanted the Bridgettine Sisters to build a church that could temporarily serve all Catholics in the town.
