What should I bring on retreat with me?

Are there particular items I shouldn't forget?

The less you can bring with you on retreat, the better! Bring enough that you can feel comfortable during your time in Manresa.

  • You might like to bring your own Bible. While there is a Bible (New Jerusalem Bible) in every room, you may appreciate having a familiar edition or translation with you.
  • Many people like to write while they are on retreat;  some take time to sketch, draw or paint. You may like to bring your own selection of supplies. (We do have a small art room which has a selection of basic equipment.)
