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!

2nd Annual Peace in the Mourning

A Christ Focused Widow's Retreat

Presented by Sr. Connie Kramer, Marilyn Hess and Fr. Jim Farrell and a panel of widows

September 21-23, 2018

Jennifer Trapuzzano found herself to be a widow less than a year after being married and just a few weeks before their first daughter was to be born. As a faithful Catholic, Jennifer clung to Christ, who has carried her through many dark times. She learned that "even in the darkest times, there's always a light."

While grieving has never been easy, she found understanding, companionship, and comfort by relating with other widows. Her hope is that through Peace in the Mourning, faithful widows can come together for hope and healing as they remember their beloved spouses.

The 2nd Annual Peace in the Mourning Retreat has been planned for you by widows who want others to experience the peace they found in this retreat experience last year.

Facilitated by: Sister Connie Kramer, SP

Other Presenters: Fr. Jim Farrell, Marilyn Hess and a panel of widows.

Dates: September 21-23 Starting at 6:30 pm on Friday and ending by 1 pm on Sunday.

$195 includes private overnight accommodations for 2 nights, all meals and the program.

*Scholarship money is available to help those who cannot afford the full cost of this retreat. Call Cheryl McSweeney at 317-545-7681 *106 for more information.
