A stately brick and stone Beaux Art landmark, Carondelet 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. Today, Carondelet Center’s meeting spaces weave modern amenities with antique period detail and charm including elegant furnishings and period woodwork.

Nestled into the beautifully landscaped campus of the Sisters of St. Joseph, adjacent to St. Catherine University, Carondelet Center provides a perfect base to wander peaceful floral gardens, idyllic wooded grounds, or to explore the numerous cultural delights the Twin Cities has to offer.

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