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!

What's New at Fatima?

During this season of anticipation, of waiting for the Lord, don't forget to take time to just be still. Come to Fatima December 17, 18 or 19 for one or more days or evenings of quiet contemplation and preparation of heart. Create your own Advent retreat or add spiritual direction. More information can be found here.

Are you looking for a unique way to spend New Year's Eve? Join Fr. Keith Hosey and Sr. Maureen Mangen for our annual New Year's Eve overnight retreat titled A Journey of Gratitude. Reflect on all the good gifts and blessings of this past year, including the trials, while enjoying a festive dinner and a complimentary midnight toast to 2015!

From our staff to each of you: We wish you a peaceful Advent journey, many blessings along the way, and a joyous celebration of His coming!
