Group tours

If you work at a school, belong to an organization, church, or club, you can schedule a group tour with one of our knowledgeable tour leaders. Our tours are perfect if you have a passion for history, are interested in spirituality and religion, have a love of nature, or are curious about living more sustainably.

A guided tour is one of the best ways for you to understand our story and how it applies to these topics.

You can choose the tour schedule that works best for your group.

  • Morning Tour

    9:15 a.m. to 11:15 a.m.

    Your Morning Tour starts with a short video introduction followed by a tour of some of our most historic and beautiful spaces including the Shrine of Saint Mother Theodore Guerin and the Church of the Immaculate Conception.

  • Afternoon Tour

“When I am leading tours I'm able to see people absorb Mother Theodore's grace and goodness as they walk this holy ground. I know they will leave their own footsteps, their own goodness, energy, and joy, which will bless Saint Mary-of-the-Woods for years to come.”
