How to run a Retreat in Daily Life

On this page you will find a range of documents you can download which will give you a clear guide to setting up your own RIDL in your local area. This includes the Manresa Link members database to allow you to find and contact the nearest potential prayer guides. You can also download example documents to adapt for your particular retreat.
