Welcome to Manresa

The Front Entrance to Manresa

THE MISSION OF MANRESA
To help men and women grow spiritually
through prayer, reflection, guidance, and teaching
according to the Ignatian tradition

Manresa Jesuit Retreat House is a place of quiet, peace and prayer that seeks to help people grow in their spiritual life by conference or group retreats and individually directed retreats based on the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius Loyola. We offer workshops, spiritual direction, days of prayer, and a two-year Internship Program in Ignatian Spirituality. Our retreat center and its conference facilities are also used by other religious and educational groups. And from time to time our staff lead pilgrimages or tours overseas.

Though just sixteen miles north of the center of Detroit, our thirty-seven wooded acres are a place of peace, and the main branch of the young Rouge River runs through it. Come to the quiet of this special place and find rest for your souls.
