Introducing Foley Park Pavers…
An opportunity to honor and memorialize loved ones

Special honor/memorial gifts can be requested through our Foley Park Paver program.

Frequently donors want to give a gift in honor or memory of a parent, another family member, former teacher, classmate or some other special person in their lives. Donors often wish to honor special occasions, such as anniversaries or jubilees or they may just want a unique gift for that hard-to- buy-for person.

We are excited to announce another location on this “holy ground” of Saint Mary-of-the-Woods where this recognition will be possible – Foley Park.

The former site of the original academy, Foley Hall, is now referred to as Foley Park, a pleasant, grassy area with benches in front of the Providence Spirituality & Conference Center (PSCC). Two walk ways, one on the east and the other on the west, traverse the park from the avenue fountain toward the entry of PSCC.

These walkways are used daily by students and staff at Saint Mary-of-the-Woods College, as well as Sisters of Providence and staff, visitors, tour groups and guests. The walks are in proximity to the Church of the Immaculate Conception, Our Lady of the Campus statue and the outdoor statue of Saint Mother Theodore Guerin.

Individuals memorialized or honored on a Foley Park Paver will be automatically enrolled in the Blessed Sacrament Association, where they are prayed for daily by the sisters in the Blessed Sacrament Chapel. A Mass is offered in the Church of the Immaculate Conception once a month for
those enrolled.

Donations are accepted for three paver sizes. Each size may have up to 18 characters per line (including spaces and characters):


$250 – Rectangle
(8.25 X 5.5 paver) with three lines of inscription

$500 – Jumbo (8.25 X 8.25 paver) with four lines of inscription

$750 – Titan (8.25 X 11 paver) with five lines of inscription

The pavers will be laid on the walkway to the east first (nearest the Church of the Immaculate Conception).
