Welcome to Manresa House of Retreats in Convent, Louisiana!
Why do I need to make my retreat at Manresa? The 6,200 men who make their annual retreat at Manresa on the Mississippi could answer your question in a heartbeat. These men have come to understand and experience the value of removing themselves from the clamor and clutter of their daily life. It is these distractions that hinder each one of us from hearing God's individual message directed to us.
Your Retreat Master will guide you through a series of eleven 30 minute presentations that mirror the spiritual exercises and directions of Saint Ignatius. These presentations are vital to truly experiencing the retreat process. When coupled with the absolute adherence to an air of silence these events allow one to come into contact with their inner spirit and to hear the inspirations from the Lord.
The grounds at Manresa are the perfect setting for this retreat, but Manresa is more than a beautiful environment… Manresa is an atmosphere. It is an atmosphere that will lift your spirit and free you to listen to God. Each year the men of Manresa return to their families renewed, energized and at peace with themselves. For these reasons the Manresa House of Retreats, located in Convent, Louisiana, is recognized as one of the premier Jesuit retreat houses in the entire world.
