Silent Directed and Self-Guided Retreats


Our Lady of Fatima Retreat House, a place to be...with God!, is pleased to offer various opportunities for silence throughout the year, opportunities to grow in your prayer life and deepen your relationship with God. Our ministry calls us to be welcoming to all and to invite you to accept Jesus' personal invitation to step away from daily life, quiet the soul and make deliberate your intention to listen for what God has to say.

We provide the place. You provide the open mind and heart.

"Come away by yourselves to a deserted place and rest awhile" -Mark 6:31

Silent Self-Guided Days of Reflection

These days offer participants the opportunity to come away to Fatima in a relaxed, calm and quiet atmosphere-an opportunity to 'unplug' from the outside world. Step away from electronics, phones, computers and such and focus your attention on your relationship with God. Prayer, silence, and your focus on listening is at the heart of these days.
