Manresa Jesuit Retreat House Banquet

Fr. Bernie Owens, SJ, former ministry staff member of Manresa Jesuit Retreat House, delivered the keynote address at the Manresa fundraising banquet at Shenandoah Country Club, West Bloomfield. Over 300 people attended the annual banquet which also featured a silent auction, a raffle and tours of the adjacent Chaldean Cultural Center. Monies raised will benefit Manresa Jesuit Retreat House, whose mission is to help men and women grow spiritually through prayer, reflection, guidance and teaching according to the tradition of St. Ignatius of Loyola.
