0509 Manresa retreatJesus did it. Christians have done it for centuries. Draw apart and you’ll discover why spiritual retreat is a discipline that the church encourages as a regular practice.

This retreat offers an opportunity to learn how to spend extended time in silence. Each day there will be devotion and communion as well as times of teaching about a variety of prayer practices. Daily, you’ll have the opportunity to meet with a Spiritual Companion, who is trained to help you listen to the Spirit of God. Manresa also offers ravine walks and a labyrinth.

This is a wonderful opportunity to develop and to deepen your spiritual practice. The cost is approximately $600 for accommodation, meals and retreat direction. For more information, please contact Anne+ at acrosthwait@sjym.ca.
