What Our Retreatants Are Saying

  • The Spiritual Exercises help me pray purposefully and feel God's love and continual guidance. The experience was life-changing! The Spiritual Exercises
    I come every year to lift up my struggles, questions and gratitude and leave restored, refreshed and blessed. Refreshed & Blessed
    Working through my 12 Step journey, I arrived sad and discouraged and found an oasis of faith and hope! Faith & Hope
    The Daily Examen allows me to incorporate my learnings into my everyday life. Through this experience, I have moved from success to significance and continue to shape a new lifestyle and legacy for my family. The Daily Examen
  • Feeling stuck in a no-change burdensome environment, I am now able to take God's hand and work through my "in the meantime" situation with gratitude and direction. Thank you! Gratitude & Direction
    Thank you for this opportunity. We live in a busy and hectic world, and I feel it's essential for my own spiritual growth to have a place for quiet time with the Lord; I only wish that it was longer. Precious Quiet Time
    Taking time to reflect, empty your cluttered mind and hear God’s voice deep within you is a gift everyone should have an opportunity to experience. Hear the Voice of God
    Individuals of all faiths need a safe accepting place to explore their relation to their God and their questions about the destination of their life. Answers are there to all of us if we take the time to be still and know God. Be Still & Know God

Current Event & News

We welcome anyone who would like to volunteer at Ignatius House!  What are your gifts and talents and how would you like use them at Ignatius House? We frequently have projects, both inside and outdoors, that require many hands.  This may be stuffing envelopes or assisting in a garden clean-up day!  Send an email to volunteer@ignatiushouse.org and let us know your interests and your availability.  It is preferred that all volunteers have experienced a Day of Reflection or a Silent Retreat so that you know what we are all about! If you have never participated in either, we encourage you to check out the Quick Registration link to see what might be of interest to you!

Current Volunteer Opportunities:

Green thumb or not, we could use some help on our Spring garden clean-up day!  As we do every Spring and Fall our Volunteers meet to spruce up our beloved Ignatius House.  This Spring we focus on our “new” facility, the Residence.

This old home is the original jewel on the property. It was here long before the retreat house.  Built in 1935 and home for the Spaulding family for years before they donated the entire property for a Jesuit Retreat Center, it is in need of some outside maintenance before we put it into service as our overflow retreat house.

We will be weeding, planting, pressure washing, carpentry work, and various other chores that will prepare the exterior of the house for its new role. The schedule will be to get together at 8 am Saturday the 23rd of April and work until lunch at noon.  We hope to finish by early afternoon.  Of course, the more volunteers we get the sooner we will finish. If you are interested in helping with this one-day outdoor clean up, please contact Bob Wilhelm, Grounds and Maintenance Manager at bwilhelm@ignatiushouse.org.

If you’d like to come by and visit, please call the Office at 404-255-0503 to see what times are best. We also invite you to join us on Fridays at 12:15 p.m. for our public Mass in the St. Ignatius Chapel.
