VISITORS DAYS are the perfect time to see, experience and just be!
In conjunction with our silent retreats, and Days of Reflection, Ignatius House provides another opportunity for individuals to come to our center to retreat, reflect and deepen their relationship with God. We call these days “Visitors Days.”

We do ask that you call ahead 404.255.0503 to check that there are no scheduling conflicts and that you check in with us when you arrive at the Resource Building.
Upcoming Visitor Days Dates:
To be announced

Take a Spiritual Vacation at Ignatius House Retreat Center
- Alleluia! He is Alive! Alive in Us!
In this wonderful Easter Season, a season of hope, I offer you this prayer by one of my favorite spiritual writers, Joyce Rupp:
Jesus, you are risen! You are with us.
Keep us ever mindful of how you are a part of our lives
in a deep and profound way.
You invite ordinary people to come to where You live.
When they come, You welcome them
And call them to labor and rejoice with You.
Surprise us with a touch of your love
in unexpected places.
Fill our hearts with hope.
May the gift of your presence transform every one of our ordinary moments
into a sacred place where you dwell.
Help us to see this gift through the eyes of faith.
Fill us with your peace.
Spring is upon us, summer will be here soon. Don’t forget to check out our Spiritual Enrichment Programs for June! There are wonderful opportunities at Ignatius House to soak in the warmth of God’s love and enrich your spiritual lives! Check out our Enrichment page and Join in the celebration of Vatican II 50 years later.
Peace be with you!

ARE YOU IN NEED OF A SPIRITUAL VACATION TO DEEPEN YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD?
Given the frenzied pace of modern life, it is increasingly rare to take the time for self-reflection and spiritual renewal. Yet, everyone needs and deserves the time to connect more deeply with their faith, their spiritual journey, and their relationship with God.
At Ignatius House Retreat Center, our mission is to provide individuals of all faiths with the perfect place to take a spiritual vacation.
Join us for a Weekend Silent Retreat, 5 – 8 Day Directed Retreat or Day of Reflection based on the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius Loyola. You’ll leave feeling refreshed and renewed with a deeper connection to God and his will for your life. Retreat Descriptions and Schedule.
