Programs and Special Events


From the beginning the main offering of Manresa has been three-day and four-day weekend or mid-week retreats, to which individually directed retreats were added. But Manresa is not just a Retreat House; it is in reality a Spirituality Center at which many other opportunities for spiritual growth are available.

Five mini-courses, some available in concentrated weekend workshops, can introduce you to Ignatian Spirituality. Those who complete these courses may apply to continue in the Ignatian Formation Internship to learn to be a spiritual leader, retreat director and/or companion.

Other educational programs teach Scripture, methods of prayer and other topics. Men and women each have their own support groups and book clubs. There are single days or evenings of prayer, prayer in the midst of nature, musical concerts, Christian yoga, and a variety of other programs that change from year to year. Take a look at our Other Resources page which includes other spiritual offerings available to you.
