Helping you connect with the holy.

Welcome to Marywood Franciscan Spirituality Center. If you are seeking greater meaning in life and a deeper relationship with God, others, self and all creation, you’ve come to the right place. We provide space and wisdom for inspiration, reflection and solitude. 

Located on the shore of Trout Lake in the scenic Wisconsin Northwoods, Marywood Franciscan Spirituality Center is a peaceful place to nourish mind, body and spirit.

We offer programs and retreats on a variety of topics including spirituality, prayer, care of creation, among others as well as spiritual direction online, on-site and off-site. We also offer space for hosted groups and private retreats.

Marywood is a ministry sponsored by the Franciscan Sisters of Perpetual Adoration based in La Crosse, Wisconsin.

Women's Christmas Canceled

Due to the continuing and increasing of the Covid disease(pandemic), after much thought, discussion, and prayer we, Marywood staff, have decided to cancel the January 6, 2022 Women’s Christmas event that was to be held at Holy Family Parish in Woodruff. We are of a mind that “yes” we will pick it up and do it again, though the time is not clear for us at this point.  Thank you for your understanding.
