The Next 50 Years
Step by step, Ignatius House has made progress toward the completion of its long-term vision for the retreat center, creating a place where silence is truly sacred. Now, Ignatius House has launched a $2.3 million Jubilee Campaign: Preparing for the Next 50 Years of Service to fund improvements that will enhance the retreat experience and provide a foundation for the next 50 years. Ignatius House has secured $1.2 million in funds, including generous support from the Board of Directors. Less than 1 million remains to complete the campaign.
The campaign will fund:
Construction of a 4,000 sq. ft. resource building to house all staff offices and the Trinity Bookshop – DONE
Entry safety enhancements, landscaping and site work including a paved central courtyard and an expanded parking lot – DONE
Improvements to the retreat house increasing the number of rooms by five, including two handicapped-accessible rooms and an expanded lobby space – DONE

Information technology upgrades including updates to hardware and software NOT YET COMPLETED
