For decades, residents of the neighborhoods around Mount de Sales Academy have flocked to the school's historic high ground to enjoy a view of the Catonsville fireworks show and catch a glimpse of the Inner Harbor's celebration in a low-key atmosphere that allowed people to catch up with friends and neighbors. This year, however, the school decided to put an abrupt end to that neighborhood tradition. In recent months, residents have seen new black security fencing and gates erected between the school and the community.

The Baltimore area's first new convent in decades for a growing religious order opened its doors Sunday afternoon to give visitors a peek inside. Mount de Sales Academy, a Catonsville landmark and high school, welcomed more than 1,000 people to view the newly built convent, giving them what may be the only opportunity to see the entire structure, as everything but a few designated areas will be cloistered. "This is a real blessed moment," said Mother Ann Marie, the mother general of the Dominican Sisters of St. Cecilia Congregation of Nashville, Tenn., who came for the dedication of the convent chapel and open house.
