Manresa Center

A PHOTO OF the Manresa Center of Saint Louis University:

Manresa Center, Saint Louis University, in Saint Louis, Missouri, USA

At one time a large private residence, then a Catholic school, later a friary, this building is now a conference center and retreat house.  A large chapel is adjacent and merits further investigation.

Manresa is the Spanish city where Saint Ignatius of Loyola laid down his sword and instead took up the Cross of Christ.

  1. Great chapel! Truly beautiful despite some 'renovations'. I went on a Miles Christi retreat there a couple of years ago. Wish they'd have another Miles Christi retreat there again.

  2. I've never seen the chapel, but I work at SLU and went to a meeting at Manresa once. It's not much to get excited about.
