Our Beginnings.....

Deeply moved and guided by Messages Ruth Ann Wade began receiving from our Lord Jesus and His Blessed Mother in the early 1990's, Ruth Ann and Jim Wade, both educators in the Bloomington public school system, gave up their home, their farm, and the future they had planned, dedicating the land to the Mother of Jesus.

As you tour this website, you will learn through excerpts from the Messages Ruth Ann has received that each step taken in the development of this "Haven of Peace and Prayer" has been done under the guidance of Jesus and Mary. The Retreat Center is still referred to as "The Farm" by those who visit, as it was throughout the messages.

Staffed by dedicated volunteers, Mother of the Redeemer Retreat Center also houses a friary for the Franciscan Friars of the Immaculate.

Visitors are welcomed to come share in its quiet beauty.

"The Farm" is a Haven of Peace and Prayer for many.

From simple beginnings, the facilities have grown to include a retreat house, a 30-room guesthouse, a dining hall, an annex, a bookstore, and friary for the Franciscan Friars of the Immaculate.

The Wades' former home serves as the convent. At the top of the hill, the chapel, with its commanding view of the surrounding countryside, offers visitors a place for worship, prayer, and quiet reflection.



This farm has been chosen by God to be a haven of peace and prayer. It is to be a refuge for My children. I have come to call My children here to receive blessings, miracles, and graces available in great abundance.
