The Shrine of Saint Mother Theodore Guerin

Saint Mother Theodore Guerin was a woman of courage, determination and compassion. Her trust in Providence – the protective care of God – helped her accomplish many things.

Follow her journey from France to the back woods of Indiana where she founded the Sisters of Providence and Saint Mary of the Woods College in 1840. As you travel along in this museum-like setting you’ll find original artifacts, including Saint Mother Theodore’s writing desk, chaplet, prayer book, shoes and more.

In the small chapel room located in the back of the shrine you can take a moment for prayer and reflection as you view Saint Mother Theodore’s final resting place.

Open daily from 8 a.m. until 5 p.m. (EDT)
at Saint Mary-of-the-Woods, Indiana
All are welcome.
Admission is free.
Donations are always appreciated.

To visit the shrine enter through the main doors of Providence Spirituality & Conference Center, located at the end of The Avenue.
