Welcome to Manresa Link

This spirituality seeks God in all things.

Manresa Link is a network of people in and around Birmingham, UK, who are involved in Ignatian Spirituality. 

The network exists to train, encourage and support those drawn to a ministry of prayer accompaniment rooted in the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius of Loyola. This ministry is offered to people of all Christian denominations and none, through courses, retreats, quiet days and ongoing spiritual accompaniment.

God is everywhere so pray anywhere

Do you want to deepen your spiritual life?

Here are two suggestions:

1.  Journey into Freedom.  This online retreat is based on the Spiritual Exercises of Ignatius of Loyola. It is a lovely and easily accessible way of deepening our faith and can be used at any time.  It can be done by groups or by individuals over a period of 52 days, praying with the resources provided, for about 20 or 30 minutes a day.  Ideally, it is best to be part of a group and/or to have weekly meetings with a guide, as this is likely to improve the experience of the retreat.  For more information click here

2.  A three week course for personal growth and development combining scripture, spiritual exercises of St Ignatius and life stages.

    • Intimacy with the Father (childhood)
    • Friendship with Jesus (youth)
    • Living in the spirit of truth and love (Adulthood)

Retreats in Self-Isolation

This period of self-isolation may be an ideal time to make a Retreat in Daily Life; to set aside time to pray, listen to God and notice God's presence in your life during these challenging times. Meetings with retreat guides/companions can take place across a variety of online platforms - see the Retreats in Daily Life page for further information.

For God alone my soul waits in silence, for my hope is from him ~ Psalm 62:5
