Motherhouse and Seminary Morgan Memorial Garden

Motherhouse and Seminary Morgan Memorial Garden

The new Learning Commons has become the intellectual and social heart of campus. So it is only fitting that in the area directly in front of this gateway to bold ideas, we celebrate the bold hearts that founded the IHM Congregation in 1845 and Marywood in 1915. The focal point of this memorial is a fountain in honor of the IHM Congregation and its founders, at the exact site where the Motherhouse Chapel was once located. With your support, their bold spirits will continue to be a wellspring of inspiration and enlightenment for years to come.

Commemorative Pavers

Make a gift toward a personalized paver for yourself, a loved one, a special IHM sister, a favorite professor, your graduating class or someone who has been a significant influence in your life.

Nestled in the Memorial Plaza of the Motherhouse and Seminary Morgan Memorial Garden, the pavers are prominently featured in the walkway leading to the Learning Commons.

Memorial Plaza Pavers ($500 each)

Your commemorative paver can be engraved as a lasting tribute, paving the way for generations of Marywood students to come. A limited number of pavers are available for a gift of $500. Pavers are approximately 3 feet by 1.5 feet and included up to 3 lines of text with 30 characters per line.

Memorial Garden Path Pavers ($1,500 each)

Individual pavers, each bearing a special message or tribute from the benefactor, create a meaningful space in the entryway to each of the gardens. Pavers are 54" x 54" or 4'5" x 4'5".
