The historic Our Lady of Lourdes Grotto offers a beautiful, historical setting for weddings (of all faith traditions) and other memorable events.

The site has seasonal flowers but you may bring additional flowers and candles. You would provide chairs, guest book stand, tables, etc. Electricity can be accessed from the outlet on the north side of the Grotto or from the Lodge. A sound system can be rented for a small charge. Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee an alternate rain site. The Lodge may be used as a dressing area or we can provide other available locations.


Parking spaces are available both on the south and west sides of Providence Center. Several spaces are designated as handicapped areas. The no-parking area in front of the building is for emergency vehicles only. Wheelchairs are available upon request from the Providence Center Lobby receptionist. Traffic will be prevented from using the road during your wedding service.

Alcoholic beverages are not allowed on the property without an event license purchased and obtained from Sodexo Food Services.
