Ignatius House Walks With the Excluded
Ignatius House provides a place of peace and quiet on 20 wooded acres in North Atlanta where a 500-year-old method for prayer and clarity is embraced. We show you how Ignatian spirituality (developed by the Spaniard St. Ignatius of Loyola) helps us become not only our best selves, but also our truest selves. It is a new path to encountering God.
We seek to accompany people as they discern complex choices in the social, economic, and cultural spheres of life. We work to openly welcome those who are suffering by helping each other listen to our deepest self, the space where God speaks to us, when serious problems have to be solved.
