Additional conference facilities are available at our Saint Teresa campus in central Winona. Located on the former College of Saint Teresa campus, this scenic locale includes the beautiful Chapel of Saint Mary of the Angels, the Alverna Conference Center and the Minnesota Conservatory of the Arts.

Previously, the campus was home to the Sisters of Saint Francis and boasts the lovely Chapel of Saint Mary of the Angels, which has an impressive marble interior and detailed stained glass. Many of the main buildings were built in the 1920s in Northern Italian Romanesque architecture.
