Saint Ignatius Retreat House (Inisfada) is a Catholic retreat and apostolic conference center inspired by the vision of Ignatian Spirituality. Inisfada offers a spiritual home – a sacred and welcoming environment where people of all faiths and cultures can deepen their relationship with God, so that they may be renewed and be women and men for others. The Jesuits in collaboration with their partners – lay, religious, and clergy – are committed to the ministry of the Spiritual Exercises of Saint Ignatius and to the education and on-going formation of those engaged in this sacred ministry.
