Courses

Courses at Manresa Jesuit Centre of Spirituality generally run over a number of sessions - weekly, fortnightly or monthly. The time between meetings allows an opportunity for participants to reflect, read, pray and consider their involvement.

Attendance at all sessions of a course a usual expectation, as we have found that the development of content and group relationships are important.
