Meditation and prayer find encouragement; resting in God and being renewed in the Spirit are the instruments of the peace we offer. In the quiet of the woods, the contemplative walk of the labyrinth, the serenity of the Rosary Walk & Prayer Garden, the solitude of your room, or the peacefulness of the chapel, you can discover the gift of God's presence in the stillness of your heart.

 

Conveniently located in the heart of the Midwest in Indianapolis, Indiana, we offer a place set apart from the distractions of the outside world-13 acres of serenity in the city. Join us for one of our retreats or programs, host your own retreat here, or come for a day of silence or private retreat. Experience the comfort and Christian hospitality that is Our Lady of Fatima Retreat House!

OUR TRAILS ARE OPEN !!!!

Work is nearly completed in our efforts to restore our woods and trails. The trails are open, however we have a bit of work left to be done to control efurther erosion. Through the help of our many generous donors and supporters, the assistance of the Archdiocese, and a grant by the James P. Scott Captial Endowment Fund we have raised enough funds to complete the project! Not only that, we have been blessed by the hard work of many volunteers to help clear the woods after the trees were professionally felled. We expect the trails to be open soon, but work will need to continue to beautify the trails.

As work continues on the trails, if you would still like to help us to restore the natural beauty of the trails on the grounds of Fatima, no gift is too small and we appreciate every gift. Thank you in advance for your generosity and faithful stewardship of God's gift of natural beauty at Fatima!
