Frequently Asked Questions
We can’t wait to welcome you to our beautiful grounds for your event. Here are some questions that frequently arise while planning a wedding or other gathering.
Saint Mary-of-the-Woods is just a short distance from downtown Terre Haute, Indiana—about an eight-minute drive from the Vigo County Courthouse. We are convenient to I-70 and just a few miles from the eastern Illinois border. The Indianapolis International Airport is less than 75 miles away. See full directions to the Woods.
Whether your event is small or large we have several venue spaces. For large events O’Shaughnessy is perfect for weddings, conferences and other celebrations. The Lobby that adjoins O’Shaughnessy makes the perfect space for more intimate gatherings like a cocktail reception or even a wedding ceremony or vow renewal. The Foley Room is great for meetings, small parties and programs. Outdoor spaces like the Lodge can be used for picnics, al fresco weddings and reunions. See all of our rental spaces.
Prices vary depending on when and how long you need the space. To see more details go to our pricing packages.
