About Manresa

If you've been searching for a meaningful way to deepen your faith, even amid the bustle of everyday life, look no further than our upcoming Manresa Retreat!

This 12-week spiritual journey is designed with you in mind. No matter if you're a busy student, a hardworking parent, a devoted parishioner, or a spiritual seeker, this is your invitation to grow closer to God in a way that fits your life.

Through daily personal prayer guided by the book Finding Christ in the World:  A Twelve Week Ignatian Retreat in Everyday Life, you'll find spiritual rejuvenation and strength.  The book, which will need to be purchased online for $38.95, is your companion on this enriching journey.

The next Manresa Retreat will begin in June 2024.

Why the name Manresa?

It harks back to the cave in Manresa, Spain, where Saint Ignatius composed the Spiritual Exercises, discovering a profound intimacy with God. This retreat is your chance to create your own 'Manresa', discovering God in your daily life.  

How does this work?

  1. To begin this journey, purchase the retreat book Finding Christ in the World:  A Twelve Week Ignatian Retreat in Everyday Life.  If you do not receive the book before the first week, the Institute for Advanced Jesuit Studies provides a link for week 1 available at THIS LINK.

  2. Our kickoff is on Tuesday, June 6th at 7pm. Starting Sunday, June 11th, we invite you to commit to daily prayer using your book.

  3. The Manresa Retreat is best experienced with others, which is why we're excited about our Small Group Faith Sharing sessions every other Tuesday.

  4. Seeking deeper guidance? Our parish spiritual directors are here to accompany you.

The program is designed by the Institute for Advanced Jesuit Studies at Boston College.  For more information on this retreat please CLICK HERE to be linked to the Institute for Advanced Jesuit Studies page.
