The very first time Our Lady appeared in the Field was on Thanksgiving Day and the date was November 24, 1988. On November 24, 1988, Our Lady gave a message. She said:
From that time on, the Field became a place of pilgrimage, a place where tens of thousands have come over the years to have an encounter with Our Lady in prayer and to lay before Her their needs. It is a place, that also has great significance for our nation, consecrated to Our Lady’s heart for its return to God. And it is a place where the Community of Caritas gathers every day to give thanks to God and Our Lady for this way of life given to the Community. It is the place, where July 1-5, 2009 , Our Lady will be with us again to pray for the conversion and healing of our nation. Make your plans to come now!
The children in the Community of Caritas learn so much about God the Creator in their daily life here. Pictured here are two of the children watching a couple of our mama pigs nursing and taking care of the litters of piglets. From cows to horses to pigs to chickens, the children are raised in an environment where they can experience the miracles of God’s providence in their every day life.
