Welcome to Manresa
Spirituality & Retreat Center
Manresa Jesuit Retreat House is a place of quiet, peace and
prayer that seeks to help people grow in their spiritual life by group
and individually directed retreats based on the Spiritual Exercises
of St. Ignatius Loyola. We offer workshops, spiritual direction, days
of prayer, a Seminar in Ignatian Spirituality, and a yearlong Internship
in Spiritual Companionship.
Our retreat center and its conference facilities are
also used by other religious and educational groups. And from time to
time our staff members lead pilgrimages overseas. You are welcome to
attend the 8 AM Mass in our main chapel on most weekdays, Monday to
Friday. On First Fridays Mass is followed by a light breakfast. Priests
are usually available for the sacrament of Reconciliation, but we recommend
calling ahead of time and making an appointment.
Though just sixteen miles north of the center of Detroit, our thirty-nine
wooded acres are a place of peace, and the main branch of the young
Rouge River runs through it. Come to the quiet of this special place
and find rest for your souls.
