"This place is holy ground. It is a place to come for special graces and blessings."
Jesus to Ruth Ann
July 14, 1994
Mother of the Redeemer Retreat Center, located a few miles west of Bloomington in the beautiful hills of south central Indiana, offers visitors a quiet haven of peace and prayer in a world filled with increasing distractions and struggles.
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.
