Advent Triduum (14-18 Dec) @ Manresa
Dec 14 @ 8:00 pm – Dec 18 @ 9:00 am

Nativity MAs the frenzy of the Christmas preparations comes to a climax, many people long for a few days’ peace and stillness, away from the mad rush. Our two Tridua here in Manresa offer just such an opportunity. Choose either the first or second week of Advent to spend some time with the seasonal themes. Centered on the themes of Advent and Christmas, and in an atmosphere of silent prayer and reflection, these days provide an opportunity for people to get in touch with the real meaning of the season and the real wonder of what we celebrate.

This year, our second Triduum will begin on the evening of Monday, 14 December, finishing with Mass and breakfast on the morning of Friday, 18 December.

A reflection will be offered each morning by a Director suggesting how the day’s prayer and silence might lead to a deeper appreciation of the God who comes to us. Afterwards the Triduum Director and members of the Manresa Team will be available for a personal meeting with those who wish. Daily Mass, adoration of the Blessed Sacrament and opportunities for the Sacrament of Reconciliation will be available. Early booking is recommended to ensure a place.

Steps2Serenity: 12 Step Meditation and Prayer Evenings @ Manresa
Jan 20 @ 8:00 pm

12 steps retreat

Manresa offers an opportunity to people on twelve-step programmes to deepen their awareness of themselves as they seek to improve their conscious contact with God “as they understand him.” For very many people, and especially those involved in a 12-Step Programme, the Serenity Prayer offers a vision of life that is rooted in faith, open to new possibilities, and yet serene in the face of limitations.

God, grant me the serenity
to accept the things I cannot change;
courage to change the things I can;
and the wisdom to know the difference.

In Steps2Serenity, Manresa is offering, on the third Wednesday of each month – except in May, July and August – for those who are involved on a 12-Step Programme an opportunity, through prayerful reflection and meditation, to come to an awareness of themselves as they are and to improve their conscious contact with God as they understand him. No need to book. Just come along yourself, or a friend or anybody who you think may benefit from an evening of prayer and meditation in a safe and peaceful environment. All are very welcome.

Accommodation may be available on the night before or after an Oasis Day.
