Retreatant's Day of Reflection An afternoon to re-acquaint with God

A station of the Cross in autumnMany people have said that they wished there were an opportunity for some kind of spiritual tune-up between their annual retreats. Twelve months is such a long time to go without some kind of revitalization. Manresa is now offering a special afternoon for all those who have experienced a retreat to renew their retreat experience and an opportunity to introduce a friend or family member to Manresa. The day will include a talk or discussion, time for private prayer/devotion, the celebration Eucharist and a dinner to round out the evening.Our first sessions have been very well received.     The following are several comments from some of the attendees:
  • (1) I didn't realize the beauty of Manresa. I never have a chance to see at this time of year.
  • (2) I appreciated the time of prayer before the Blessed Sacrament
  • (3 )This opportunity to enjoy the serenity of Manresa has reinvigorated the promises I made while I was here last spring. Thank you for the chance to touch base.
  • (4) It was very nice to spend the day in prayer, reconciliation and then attend Sunday Mass. I remembered my experience during my retreat here and it gave me the impetus to be more ready when I come next year.
  • (5) My friend invited me to come and see Manresa for myself. He was after me for many years. I am glad I took the few hours this Sunday to do this…I will be back in the spring for retreat. No wonder he loves this place…it is easy to know God is close.
  • (6) The program starts at 2:00 PM on a Sunday and lasts until 7 PM. You can arrive as early as 1:30 PM. The cost for the afternoon is $30, payable upon arrival. There is no charge for members of the Lay Retreatants League.
