Graduates of the spiritual direction training course are helped to keep in touch with one another and in their continuing formation through the Graduate Network.

Manresa Graduate Network

Manresa has trained people in spiritual direction for some 40 years, and so has a considerable number of graduates who engage in spiritual accompaniment throughout Ireland and around the world. Events and courses are organised regularly to support and develop the skills of those who continue to practice spiritual accompaniment. These have taken different forms over the years, ranging from seminars, weekends, days to other meetings. Many graduates organise their own meetings for supervision, formation and social contact - all of which Manresa is happy to facilitate.

Graduates who are willing to have their details made available by Manresa - or wish to edit the details held - can fill in this form.

Graduates’ Day October 2017

Ignatius’ notes in his Spiritual Exercises were intended to guide the exploratory steps of the retreatant; we may ask how they are of benefit to the spiritual director today. Brendan Comerford SJ will describe how spiritual directors can benefit from consideration of the First and Second Week of the Spiritual Exercises and show how initial stages of spiritual accompaniment might be helped by reflection on this core Ignatian text.

Supervision Training for Spiritual Directors

Manresa Jesuit Centre of Spirituality offers training in supervision for spiritual directors.
