As 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 second or third 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 first Triduum will begin on the evening of Monday, 5 December, finishing with Mass and breakfast on the morning of Friday, 9 December. The second Triduum will take place a week later: beginning on Monday 12 December and ending on the morning of Friday 16 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.
