In the midst of stress and noise of 21st-century life, where demands to ‘keep up’ are relentless, finding moments of peace and self-care becomes crucial, especially while we care for others. Whether you are juggling the responsibilities of caring for young children, elderly parents, or a partner with health challenges or working in demanding fields like ministry, therapy, or healthcare, we all understand the importance of rest and self-care.
At Ignatius House, our team extends a warm invitation for you to step away from the chaos and immerse yourself in the beauty and tranquility of our natural surroundings. With scenic walkable trails, a nourishing and delicious lunch, and a welcoming environment, our day retreat is designed for you to rest, pray, reflect, journal, and most importantly, experience the rejuvenating power of silence.
Join us in prioritizing your mental, physical, and spiritual well-being. Discover the art of self-care at Ignatius House – where the care of the body and soul converge for a holistic wellness experience.
