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 grotto, 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!
PLAN NOW TO MAKE A LENTEN RETREAT: We have a program or retreat for your spiritual journey through the holiest of our Liturgical seasons. We are offering silent days on Ash Wednesday and during Holy Week (add spiritual direction and/or an overnight stay if you choose). There are two weekend retreats which promise to be very enriching. Facilitators Fr. Jim Farrell (March 7-9) and Fr. Pat Beidelman (March 28-30) will be with us. There are three evenings of reflection, two days of reflection and our annual Sunday afternoon walk to pray the Stations of the Cross on Palm Sunday. Don't have time in your crazy schedule to come away for a retreat? Consider our online retreat for Lent facilitated by Fr. Jeff Godecker which takes place beginning Ash Wednesday, March 5th and continues through Holy Week. You will receive one reflection/prayer each week during Lent with some follow up questions to consider and as a study guide. For more information, visit our full calendar of events page or click here to register. There is no fee for this retreat but we are grateful for your donation!
OFFERED AGAIN THIS SUMMER: an 8-Day Ignatian Silent Directed Retreat, July 13-20, 2014. In meeting with a spiritual director once a day and through the use of scripture and their own story, retreatants are offered the opportunity to deepen their relationship with God and grow in an awareness of the Holy Spirit working in their life. Shorter time periods are also offered! You may also join us on any of these days for a silent self-guided day of reflection. See more details about this opportunity on our Silent Retreats page!
Our Lady of Fatima Catholic Retreat House welcomes people of all faiths to come away and rest in God. We offer hospitality, a peaceful setting with a supportive environment for reflection, and programs for spiritual renewal.
