"It's in the abandonment that we find the essence of God"


Emmanuel Farm

Start by doing what's necessary; then do what's possible; and suddenly you are doing the impossible.
-- Saint Francis of Assisi

The Farm will be a place where you can feel close to nature and God. What we are striving for is to live off the land. That would include organic farming, and wild eatables.

The farm will be able to accommodate groups or singles, and have will have access to 5 single rooms or an apartment self contained with it's own entrance shower kitchen and open concept living room, which could sleep 6 or 7 people should a group decide to rent for the weekends, weekly or by the month. And yes, there will be WiFi for those who need to keep in touch with their family.

On the 50 acres farm we will eventually have access to a couple of poustigna, for single retreats for those preferring to be in the woods away from the crowd. We will also provide a chapiteau for a meeting area such as picnics and evening outings with bonfire and music. Another building will be setup eventually for workshops on back to nature. "It's a work in progress."

The farm is 5 minutes from le Centre de l'Amour,
40 minutes from Ottawa and 2 hours from Montreal.

Saint Isidore

St-Isidore has become
the patron of farmers
and rural communities.

Saint Francis

Prayer from
St-Francis of Assisi

Lord, make me an instrument of your peace; where there is hatred, let me sow love;
where there is injury, pardon;
where there is doubt, faith;
where there is despair, hope;
where there is darkness, light;
and where there is sadness, joy.

O Divine Master,
grant that I may not so much
seek to be consoled as to
console; to be understood, as to understand; to be loved, as to love; for it is in giving that we receive, it is in pardoning that we are pardoned, and it is in dying that we are born to Eternal Life.
