Director of University Operations Maureen Plant for weddings at the Chapel of the Immaculate Conception.


The Chapel of the Immaculate Conception is the central worship space for the student community of collegians and seminarians of Mount St. Mary’s University and many couples request to use this space for their wedding ceremony. Because it is not a parish church, there are strict guidelines governing the use of the Chapel for the celebration of the Sacraments.


The guidelines of the Archdiocese of Baltimore grant permission for the celebration of the Sacrament of Marriage in the Chapel only to couples who have a relationship to Mount St. Mary’s University. In order to be eligible, at least one party must be Catholic and meet one of the following qualifications:

  • Students currently enrolled at Mount St. Mary’s University and have completed at least two semesters.
  • Alumni of the University. (Sons and daughters of Alumni do not qualify)
  • Employees of Mount St. Mary’s University or their children, Members of the Board of Trustees or their children.

We regret that we are not able to extend the privilege of being married at Mount St. Mary's to the general public. The University does not have the authority to grant exceptions to this policy.

Please contact the Office of University Operations for more information.

The Mount is a phenomenal place to celebrate a wedding or vow renewal. When considering locations to host our vow renewal the Mount was our first choice; not only is the campus immaculate, the staff is superb. Jamie helped me with all of our planning; from vendor recommendations to making sure every detail for the big day was handled well. Our day was better than I could have imagined.
