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!

PLEASE HELP RESTORE OUR TRAILS!

For many seekers, God is present in nature as much as in a chapel or a church. Our wooded trails have been the place of contemplation and encounter for a countless number of our guests. Our quiet, wooded sanctuary is an essential component to the spiritual atmosphere of Fatima. This past summer, however, due to safety concerns, we found it necessary to close our trails and we so very much want to re-open them for this coming spring. You see, over the past decade, the Emerald Ash Borer has slowly infested and devastated many of our trees. And this past summer, the heavy rains and high winds of several storms have downed many of the trees and eroded away sections of our trail. In order to restore our bridge and trails, we must cut down and remove over 80 trees that have fallen or are in danger of falling, at a cost of over $90,000. We are grateful to have received a small grant due to the generosity of the James P. Scott Capital Improvement Endowment Fund maintained by the Catholic Community Foundation-Archdiocese of Indianapolis to remove one very large tree threatening one of our buildings. But it isn't enough to safely re-open the trails.Won't you please help us to restore the safety and natural beauty of the woods and trails on the grounds of Fatima? If you would like to help, we need manpower and financial assistance. 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!
