We are excited to share a new resource detailing the many beautiful outdoor sacred spaces we have in the Archdiocese!
Whether you are looking for an outdoor retreat, something to do as a family, or a quiet day of reflection, the many beautiful grottos, labyrinths, prayer trails and are great places to rediscover a religious vision of creation.
Please be sure to follow all local health guidelines and be respectful of the communities as you visit!
Many thanks to the leadership at all these sacred spaces for their help in developing this resource!
Outdoor Sacred Spaces Grant(s)
Recently the Archdiocese of Indianapolis Creation Care Ministry received $1,000 grant money from the Catholic Climate Covenant to be used in the Archdiocese of Indianapolis to create new or update existing outdoor sacred spaces.
We are currently accepting project ideas for parishes and schools to use the money for outdoor sacred spaces such pollinator gardens, wildlife habitats, rain gardens, tree plantings, or community gardens.
Please contact us if you are interested in becoming a beneficiary of this grant! We can provide resources or help you plan your outdoor sacred space. No project is too big or small!
