Shrine for Saint Mother Theodore Guerin

Shrine of Saint Mother Guerin

The Sisters of Providence wanted a master plan for the new Shrine for the recently canonized Saint Mother Theodore Guerin, the 19th century foundress of their religious community. The 3,000 sf Shrine is integrated into the campus at Saint-Mary-of-the-Woods College near Terra Haute, IN. The facility includes a cafe and bookstore, meeting rooms, historical display gallery and tomb area with the Saint’s casket. Following the Sisters of Providence’s directive of living lightly on the earth, the entire Shrine fits within existing renovated buildings.
