Take time for yourself, be renewed and draw closer to God; come to a retreat at Montserrat Jesuit Retreat House

  • A retreat is a time of quiet when you can get away from the ordinary demands of life.
  • A retreat provides both time and space to gain a better perspective on the deeper meaning of your life.
  • A retreat offers more of what you yearn for, that is a place and a way to come to know God better in intimate and personal relationship.
  • A retreat is a time of reconciliation and peace.
  • A retreat is a gift you give yourself and allow the Lord to bless the gift. It is a time for you to be good to yourself.

Discovering or deepening your own way of praying is an important outcome of the Montserrat retreat. A Montserrat retreat will ask you to look at your relationships: with God, with your spouses and families, with friends, with the Church, with your own world -- and with you own self. And you will hear Jesus Christ saying to you "Do not be afraid."

About your Director:


Fr. Chris Manahan, SJ, has been director of the Jesuit Retreat House on Lake Winnebago near Oshkosh, Wisconsin, since January 2015, working to maintain the tradition of a warm welcome and home-like atmosphere for retreatants who come there to pray and grow in their relationship with God. A native of Rochester, Minnesota, he entered the Jesuits in 1993 at the age of 37, after a 15-year newspaper career in Albert Lea, MN, and Cedar Rapids, IA. After being ordained in 2003 he served two years as pastor on the Rosebud Indian Reservation in South Dakota; spent a year preparing for final vows as a Jesuit by working with Jesuits in the Philippines and northeast India; and, was then missioned to provide spiritual formation at the Jesuit Novitiate in Saint Paul, MN, for young men preparing to make first vows in the Society of Jesus.
