4-day Directed Retreat (7-12 Jun) <Online>
During an online directed retreat, the retreatant will be offered the opportunity to meet with the director every day (using video-conferencing), to be accompanied in their review of their prayer and reflection. If the key factors in the directed retreat can be preserved - personal prayer, reflection, silence, daily meeting with a director and participation in the Eucharist - the unexpected setting of the everyday may not offer the imagined resistance. Any directed retreat is intended to create an environment where the individual can meet God intimately and discover that they are uniquely loved and called by God.
Retreatants are encouraged to participate in this Eucharistic celebration - if only by joining online the liturgy celebrated in Manresa. Depending on timing and location, some people may be able to attend mass locally.
A shorter directed retreat may offer optional talks and guidance in prayer to those wanting the quiet of an individually guided retreat and supportive input. These retreats ordinarily begin at 8:00 pm and finish after lunch on the closing day, a format we suggest you consider in the online form too.
