Conference Retreats at Manresa last 3 or 4 days during which a retreat director will offer reflections to people as a group. The conferences or talks are about the spiritual life in general, and the retreats are for either men or women.

Some of these retreats, however, are Topical Retreats which are addressed to specific groups with specific needs, and these retreats are sometimes coed.

A special Sunday afternoon group retreat of about 5 hours, open to all, can serve as a refresher for recent retreatants, or an introduction to new comers.

We also offer silent Individually Directed Retreats where the retreatant and director meet one-on-one for a period of 3 to 8 days.  You may usually make these on the days of your choice from September to May; during the summer they are limited to three scheduled sessions. If you want to register for any of the retreats, the schedule for these retreats appear on the right hand side of your screen. Just click on the date of the retreat you are interested in and you will be presented with the information about the retreat and a "Register" button to register. Complete the registration process as instructed.
