PITTSBURGH (AP) - A home for retired priests in Pittsburgh is getting a $5 million makeover that includes a new kitchen, dining room, living room and exercise facility.

The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports (https://bit.ly/1TpCWsX ) the Roman Catholic Diocese of Pittsburgh plans to displace half of the retired clergy residents of St. John Vianney Manor for about a year. Renovations are expected to begin in July.

Officials say 29 residents live in the facility.

Renovation plans call for adding four suites - for a total of 36 - with an option for a new wing containing up to 20 more suites.

Plans include a new elevator, heating and air conditioning system and nurse’s office, as well as bathroom upgrades.

Suites will get new windows, carpeting and fresh paint. The entrance will also be moved.
