Welcome to Manresa

August 2020

Manresa will reopen in a limited capacity in August. You are welcome to pre-register for a one-day or two-night retreat during the month and we will let you know about availability on your chosen dates. 

Details of limited reopening in August 2020 can be found on our COVID-19 Response page or you can see the dates on our calendar.

We hope to resume our published schedule - albeit with small numbers and remote participants - from September as we continue to monitor and respond to the continuing public health alert.
