Prairiewoods Blends Ecology and Spirituality in Faith-Based Earth-Care

Every story has a beginning, even though there may be no exact moment we can point to and say, “Here is when the first seed was planted. This is where the story began.” This is true of Prairiewoods’ story. The beginning of Prairiewoods Franciscan Spirituality Center doesn’t rest in one specific moment in time; our existence has emerged gradually and naturally over the last five decades …

Over the last 23 years, Prairiewoods has become a leader in faith-based Earth-care, offering as many as 500 programs and retreats a year on ecology, spirituality and holistic health. With our focus on ecology, we take seriously our role as partners with God in caring for Creation. Prairiewoods is blessed to be caretakers for an abundance of natural beauty and a variety of wildlife within our 70 acres of woodlands and prairies. We find joy in our responsibility to actively protect and restore the abundance of life found on our grounds. Read More>

*Important information about online payments in Europe

A new European Union law is going into effect this month that will require an extra security step for online payments – called Strong Customer Authentication (SCA). This is to reduce fraud for cardholders, and all organisations with EU customers are required to comply.

Thus authentication checks will become more frequent & applied at random when you make a purchase or donation online. When you do any payment or donation in our websites you may see a pop-up from your bank or card issuer requesting a username and password, a code sent to email or text, or any other authentication method supported by your bank or card issuer.

If you have any questions or issues with one of these authentication methods please contact your bank or card issuer directly.
