Open your heart to the service of others

Individuals and groups are invited to share their time and talents at the monastery. Our work is possible because of the hundreds of volunteers who join us in caring for the earth and supporting our ministry of hospitality through guest services. Volunteer outdoors or indoors, depending on your preference.

In 2015, 192 different volunteers performed 6,047 hours of volunteer work. This is the equivalent of 3 full time employees. Thank you!

Environmental volunteers—
help with our mission of caring for the earth

Help us preserve the natural environment at Holy Wisdom Monastery. Whether you volunteer alone or with a group, we appreciate your interest and support. Depending on the season and the amount of time you have to offer, you might volunteer in the prairie and plant or collect seed, pick apples, split logs, prune bushes, or maintain nature trails.

The Friends of Wisdom Prairie are dedicated to caring for the earth at Holy Wisdom Monastery. Volunteer with the Friends at an upcoming Wisdom Prairie Workday scheduled several times each month from March until November.
