The First Acreage Purchased by Mary’s Children Inc.

Above is a picture of the forty acre property acquired in the early 1990’s and properties have been purchased since that time which surround the original farm. On August 5th 2016, the Lord showed Ruth Ann 22 acres in a vision and said a pond is needed to be self-sustaining. Mary’s Children is in the process of accomplishing that request.

To complete this request the amount required will be over one hundred and twenty thousand dollars.

With your generous financial support in the past, we have been able to construct the chapel, a Friary for the Franciscans, the Guest House, residence for the Sisters and last year the Conference Hall requested by the Blessed Mother. Now we ask for your financial assistance to accomplish this current request. Previously we have received labor and material contributions, but we are in need of financial assistance again at this time. It has always been our goal “not to go into debt” but to rely upon the generosity of benefactors sent to us by Our Blessed Mother.

The Friars offer their Mass each “First Friday” for our many benefactors, their families and their special intentions.

Mary’s Children volunteers provide many services for the “FARM,” such as laundry and housekeeping for the Guesthouse, helping in the dining room and childcare for retreats, and working in the bookstore.

We print, provide and mail 2,300 messages each month without charge and depend upon contributions to offset the cost. We have committed volunteers that organize, print, fold, label and prepare them for mailing each month. Our expenses are the cost of the paper, ink and postage. Once a year we ask for your help.

We continue to have and use e-news capabilities and a web-site which have been generously contributed to us which makes information available to you on activities, schedules, religious functions. We ask that you take advantage of this program, go to our web site, www.Marys’, to sign up for the “e-news free program”. You receive timely updates on current changes, programs and services etc.
