From weddings to reunions, parties to conferences, the versatile event spaces at the Woods are just what you’re looking for.

O’Shaughnessy Hall

O’Shaughnessy Hall, with its elaborate marble-based columns and stunning arched windows, was built in the gracious and elegant style of the early 20th century. The uniquely beautiful style of O’Shaughnessy requires little decoration and will complement any wedding decor or party theme.

O’Shaughnessy can be equipped with a 27×18 dance floor, up to 70 tables, and up to 500 chairs. Ask about our 12-foot x 15-foot screens for your next business seminar or conference.

The bright and airy lobby in Providence Spirituality & Conference Center connects directly to O’Shaughnessy Dining Hall. It’s an excellent location for small wedding ceremonies or cocktail parties. The lobby is included when you rent O’Shaughnessy Hall.

The Grotto at the Lodge

If you’ve always dreamed of an outdoor ceremony, why not exchange vows at the Our Lady of Lourdes Grotto located just steps outside O’Shaughnessy. The extraordinary setting is both historic and timeless.

The central aisle and peripheral sidewalk ensure ample room for bridal parties, as well as easy accessibility for your guests.  The Grotto is located just steps from O’Shaughnessy and is adjacent to ample parking.

The Lodge

Celebrations can also be set up in the Lodge, which offers a cozy space for smaller gatherings. This rustic building features a red-brick fireplace and wooden paneling. A tent can be arranged on the lawn nearby for a peaceful outdoor reception or larger event.
