    Daily Encouragement & Specials - Honoring Saint Kateri Tekakwitha - A Special Connection to Our Property's History


    Dear family,

    ***Scroll down for specials***

    In the heartland of the Mohawk Indians, a remarkable young woman named Kateri Tekakwitha was destined to become a beacon of faith and inspiration. Today, on her feast day, we commemorate her extraordinary journey and the profound connection she shared with our very own property.

    It was during the 17th century when Father Jacques Bruyas, a devoted priest, alongside two companions, embarked on a mission to discover and serve the indigenous communities residing amidst the wilderness. Among the Mohawk Indians, they encountered a young woman named Kateri Tekakwitha, whose unwavering faith and gentle spirit captivated their hearts.

    Impressed by Kateri's devoutness and deep spiritual insight, Father Jacques Bruyas recognized her immense potential as a beacon of faith for both her people and future generations. With the mission to spread the teachings of Christianity, Father Bruyas traveled further, reaching the village of the Oneida Indians.

    It was on our very property that Father Bruyas established a mission church, a sacred haven where spirituality blossomed amidst the natural beauty of the surroundings. The mission church became a gathering place for the Oneida community, a sanctuary where their faith was nurtured, and their souls found solace.

    During her own spiritual journey, Saint Kateri Tekakwitha, accompanied by an Oneida Indian, is believed to have graced our farm site with her presence. Many experts and historians suggest that she spent  time within these grounds, seeking spiritual solace and drawing strength from the tranquil environment that surrounded her.

    The echoes of Saint Kateri's footsteps resonate within the sacred land we stand upon and farm, today. It is a testament to the profound connection between her extraordinary journey and our property's enduring legacy. The very soil beneath our feet holds the imprints of her pious devotion and the unwavering love she bore for her faith.

    As we celebrate Saint Kateri Tekakwitha's feast day, let us honor her memory, her unwavering faith, and the spiritual connection she shared with our property. May her legacy continue to inspire us to embrace compassion, seek spiritual enlightenment, and cherish the profound beauty that lies within the depths of our souls.

    Today, as we gather in reverence, we pay homage to Saint Kateri Tekakwitha, the patron saint of ecology and the indigenous peoples. Let her divine presence guide us as we strive to nurture the bond between our shared history, faith, and the sacred land we call home.


    Sending our love and prayers to our remnant family...Wendy, Walt and the entire Cukierski family

    Here is a post, from a recipient of what we do,.

    L**** and I were one of the precipitants of This mission. She is right. My parking was 9 per day for 3 months. Then on top of that food cost me approximately 15 per day. That was cheap - I got vouchers for $5.00 per meal. So somedays I did not eat or made meals last for more then one meal. Had to. Parking was $810. Food was $1,300. Then you have normal household bills and I have 3 animals I had to pay to have people come and take care of them. At first I had my dog in the Kennel for 1/2 the time. That was about 500. It is VERY expensive to have a sick child. That was Just ONE hospital stay. We have had numerous ones. Some only a few days, some a week or two. Without their help we would of gone fully under!

    From providing necessary funds to actually having families stay with us...we DO what we say we do!
