Welcome to Saint Mary-of-the-Woods.
The Sisters of Providence invite you to discover our home.
The Woods (that’s our nickname) is an extraordinary place. But don’t take our word for it! Experience it for yourself.
You’ll find a variety of experiences here at Saint Mary-of-the-Woods.
Rooted in spirituality, it’s the perfect place to relax, reflect or pray. You can immerse yourself in our fascinating history and amazing architecture. Animal and nature lovers will discover an abundance of trees and plants as well as a variety of creatures such as alpacas and chickens. You can do a little shopping and stop for a bite to eat. All are welcome.
There’s always something going on at the Woods.
Check out our events, programs and workshops.
Get out of the house this winter and find books galore at our semi-annual sale!

Feb. 15 – 18 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. each day.Read More
