Get rooted for tomorrow with the Saint Mary-of-the-Woods community at the Saint Mother Theodore Guerin FEST!

As we celebrate our 175th year, this October is shaping up to be one of the most exciting times on our grounds yet! On Oct. 17, 2015 we will kick off a full day of festivities as we celebrate the life and legacy of our foundress, Saint Mother Theodore Guerin. Attend the FEST to enjoy a weekend with family and friends at Saint Mary-of-the-Woods and celebrate the legacy of our grounds! Families are encouraged to attend to learn more about our deep-rooted history, connect with others through prayer and spirituality and so much more.

The FEST is a great way to get in touch with your spiritual side. Please stay tuned for more information.
