Adopt a Retreatant
Pope Francis wrote in his meditations on the Church: “May the church be the place of God’s mercy and love, where everyone can feel themselves welcomed, loved, forgiven and encouraged to live according to the good life of the Gospel. And in order to make others feel welcomed, loved, forgiven and encouraged, the church must have open doors so that all might enter.”
Manresa, for its 90 years of existence has lived this, opening its doors to thousands of retreatants, many of whom could not pay the gas to drive here much less the cost of a retreat. Our doors remain open to all retreatants because of our Adopt-a-Retreatant Program.
