Mary M., valued office volunteer

Are you personable and friendly? Do you want a volunteer opportunity that allows you to interact with people and offer warm hospitality? Prairiewoods could use your help in our front office! You are invited to volunteer on weekends or weekday evenings, as often as you desire or your schedule allows. As an office volunteer, you will greet guests with a welcoming smile, answer phone calls, field guest questions, collect program fees, process Gift Shop purchases and help with other office duties as needed. It does not require any physical work or previous experience. This is a great opportunity to interact with people and extend hospitality for a local nonprofit!

About Prairiewoods Franciscan Spirituality Center

Mission Statement

Prairiewoods Franciscan Spirituality Center is a sacred space where people of all faiths and cultures are invited to explore and nurture their relationships with the Source of All Being, Earth, Self, and Others within an expanding understanding of the Universe Story.


Prairiewoods Franciscan Spirituality Center is a retreat and conference center focused on ecology and spirituality (or, as we call it, eco-spirituality). It is nestled in 70 acres of prairie and woodland in Hiawatha, Iowa. Prairiewoods is funded by the Franciscan Sisters of Perpetual Adoration, but it is open to people of all faiths and cultures. We are a non-profit organization offering:

  • a variety of programs and retreats to nurture your spirituality and your relationship with the environment
  • holistic services, such as massage and reflexology
  • healthy meals made on-site, primarily from local, organic ingredients
  • lodging for 35 people in our guest house and for 2 people in our straw-bale hermitages (small private cottages in the woods)
  • Wi-Fi enabled meeting spaces for companies and organizations looking to gather for workshops, planning sessions, seminars, retreats and conferences away from daily distractions (accommodating 2 to 70 people)
  • free access to 70 acres of quiet nature through walking trails, an outdoor labyrinth, a lending library with an extensive collection on the environment and a peaceful meditation room


We'll work with your schedule.
