Dóchas - finding hope

August 2020

Be ready to give an answer when someone asks you about your hope.
1 Peter 3:15

These short retreats are structured to allow you some space and time to reflect prayerfully on where you find yourself, and what recent months have revealed and to see what hope means for you now.

Manresa offers an enriched experience of “distancing”, inviting you to step aside from your ordinary context and, in the company of a small number of people, spend some hours in quiet and reflection. Taking inspirtation from 1 Peter 3:15, we will explore the invitation, "Be ready to give an answer when someone asks you about your hope" in the August retreats. 

The retreat time will include brief inputs to small groups offering prompts to prayer and perspectives for reflection.

There will be time for quiet, one-to-one conversations, prayer, Mass and for the Sacrament of Reconciliation.

Please let us know if you are interested in joining one of these one-day or two-night retreats by using the Pre-registration link on this page. You will be asked to complete a registration questionnaire which will allow us to record details necessary for contact tracing. All participants will be ready to comply with Manresa’s requirements in the interests of public health.
