About Us

Carondelet Event Center provides a welcoming and affordable community space for conferences, retreats, meetings, and events.

In keeping with the Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet’s deep commitment to service and access, the Center is open to people and organizations of all backgrounds and faiths.

Carondelet Event Center is centrally located in the Twin Cities, just minutes from both downtowns. Nestled into a beautifully landscaped campus, the Center offers charming, comfortable meeting spaces and guest rooms, free parking, and local catering — all at a very reasonable price point. With eight meeting rooms and ten guest rooms, this host facility can easily accommodate groups of various sizes.

A stately brick and stone Beaux Art landmark, Carondelet Event Center was built in 1912 by architect John W. Wheeler. The building originally served as the Novitiate for the Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet. It is adjacent to St. Catherine University, where Center guests can explore peaceful floral gardens and idyllic wooded grounds.

Combining Victorian elegance with modern meeting formats, Carondelet Center offers a unique and charming venue for your event.
