At 44 Pius is the former St. Michael’s Madchen Schule and previous home of the Veronica’s Veil playhouse. The theater hosted a series of plays throughout the year but was most famous for its Passion play, Veronica’s Veil. Performed during Lent, it was said to be the longest running play in American community theater. These buildings were part of St. Michael’s Parish. The next building housed the Burning Bush, which offered a retreat center for quiet meditation in overnight rooms. Both buildings are part of a planned new apartment complex.
