Will I be able to keep in touch?

Is there Wi-Fi?

An important preparation when coming on retreat is to make sure that nothing continues to seek your attention. The people you are in touch with may need to be let know that you will be out of contact for a little while. 

You are welcome to leave the Manresa contact details (listed here) with those who may want to get in touch with you. If you are concerned about a serious issue which might arise while you are on retreat, please inform some of the Manresa staff who will ensure that you are readily contactable. 

Wi-Fi is available throughout the house but is not intended for large-volume use. Instead it will allow access to such online resources as may be helpful during your retreat, enabling you to update your bookmarks, access journals and such.

Wired data connections are not available.

The rooms are free of telephones and we suggest that mobile phones not be used within the building as the sound of conversation disturbs the quiet environment and recollection of others.

A computer is available for light occasional use such as checking in, printing boarding cards and accessing tickets.
