Set on a serene 82-acre campus, the buildings of St. Joseph’s Villa are known for artfully handcrafted details unlike any other in Richmond. Our chapel, gymnasium, and outdoor spaces are available to rent year-round with proceeds benefiting our mission. We welcome the opportunity to talk with you about how the Villa can serve as the venue for your next event!

Events held at St. Joseph’s Villa include weddings, sports practices and tournaments, the annual CASA Superhero 5K, educational symposiums and much more.


The Villa’s charming Romanesque chapel was built in the 1930’s and has hosted weddings large and small. With arched stained glass windows, decorative wall sconces and reserved beauty, it requires little decoration.
