Mary’s Woods Holds Ground Blessing Celebration in Advance of Major Expansion

May 15, 2017

Mary’s Woods recently held a Ground Blessing Ceremony in advance of its campus expansion, a neighborhood project called, The Village at Mary’s Woods. The ceremony was the first step in building a new Village town center along Highway 43, which will feature 144 apartment homes, fitness center, community building, dining venues, healthcare center, and a variety of gathering spaces.

The special event honored Mary’s Wood’s proud heritage with the Sisters of the Holy Names of Jesus and Mary (SNJM) and featured a blessing of soil from the Sister’s original home in Longueuil, Canada with soil from our existing Mary’s Woods campus.

The Mary’s Woods spirit is inspired by the SNJM Sisters who founded Mary’s Woods and have long called this special land along the river their home. Welcoming all, regardless of faith tradition.
