Program Details

The Institute invites you to participate in 12 Weeks in Manresa: Spiritual Exercises for our Times, a virtual retreat in daily life based on the Spiritual Exercises, using a text offered through Jesuit Sources: “Finding Christ in the World: A Twelve Week Ignatian Retreat in Everyday Life,” by Joseph Tetlow, S.J., and Carol Atwell Ackels.  The book is an extended adaptation for praying with the Exercises. It provides daily content for prayer and space for taking notes. 

In addition to the book, which will guide your daily prayer, there are two additional components of the retreat: presentations on the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius, led by Fr. Casey Beaumier, S.J., and small group faith sharing.

The Institute’s involvement in your retreat is minimal. We distribute the text and assign you to a small group which will be facilitated by one or two of your fellow retreatants. The facilitators’ role is simply to schedule the timing of the small group meetings, ensure that everything is set in place to hold the virtual meetings, and then to start the weekly meetings on-time. There will be five presentations by the Institute throughout the 12 weeks.

The retreat will begin on June 7 and conclude on August 30. Those who are interested can register below.  To ensure that you receive the book by June 7, please order the book as soon as possible, especially given the potential shipping delays related to COVID-19.
