A group may decide on different arrival or departure times and on the shape of the day. The normal cost for a Day of Reflection (including lunch) is $40 for adults, $30 for seniors, $20 for students; for an evening program that includes dinner add $6. A parish may bring its own presenter or Manresa's staff is prepared to assist in these Days of Reflection.

II - Time Away for Parish Staff, Lay Leadership, Committees & Groups

Manresa is an attractive place for parish staff, parish lay leadership, or parish committees or other groups to meet, whether for a part of a day or an evening, for a whole day, or for an overnight. If desired, the Manresa staff can supply some appropriate input.

III -Younger People

Manresa can host prayer days and prayer experiences for youth groups or for those preparing for Confirmation. The parish sponsoring such experiences must bring their own director and prefects.
