Opportunities to practice one’s faith abound in Prairie du Chien—a diverse community that is home to a number of major denominations and other faith communities. Traditional services are regularly attended by parishioners, who also take advantage of prayer and study groups, faith-based education and volunteer and outreach services.
Prairie du Chien is also home to a multitude of community and civic organizations, including locally established groups and nationally known clubs. Faith in Action is an inter-faith volunteer care giving initiative that brings together volunteers to provide a number of non-medical assistance services to local homebound residents. The Rivers and Bluffs Animal Shelter began fundraising for an animal shelter in the region in July of 2007. A joint venture between Couleecap, Inc., the Salvation Army and other agencies has funded a community food pantry in conjunction with the Bargain Boutique.
Further organizations and clubs that call Prairie du Chien home are the Eagles Club, American Legion, Jaycees, Lions Club, Rotary Club and Women’s Civic Club, among others. The contribution of these groups continues to raise the quality of life discovered in Prairie du Chien today and into the future.
