The goal of the Jesuit staff, the Manresa Administration, and the Manresa Board of Directors has always been to provide an outstanding retreat experience at Manresa on the Mississippi. It is their considered opinion that financial concerns should not keep a man from attending his retreat at Manresa. With that thought in mind, there is no set donation for your retreat at Manresa.
Over the years, the men of Manresa have asked for a guideline of the actual cost for providing this experience. The Manresa Board of Directors has determined the bare bones cost of this retreat experience to be $290. This amount does not consider any costs associated with the maintenance of the buildings and grounds or any capital improvements.
Many men find that the value they receive from their treat at Manresa far exceeds the $290 amount. It is their consistent donated amounts in excess of $290 that allows for all men to afford this retreat experience.
