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.
In person or virtual. Engage with great faith thinkers from the 17th to the 20th centuries – Pascal, Kierkegaard, W. James, Gandhi, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. The seminar will focus on applying the ideas discussed to faith here and now, drawing on personal perspectives from the participants.
Farm to fork. Join us for Sunday Brunch in O’Shaughnessy Dining Room at Saint Mary-of-the-Woods for a delicious meal prepared by our new catering partner, Bon Appétit. Their philosophy is simple — cook from scratch using fresh, authentic, seasonal ingredients from local farms and artisans.
Calling all teens! Come share your time and talents with our retired Sisters of Providence at Saint Mary-of-the-Woods.
Your wedding or event deserves a special venue.
Whether you want casual or formal, large or small, we have the right space to accommodate all your needs.
