MARANATHA House of Prayer is a Catholic retreat house where Christians and people of good will can come and deepen their relationship with God and others based on the values taught by Jesus in the Gospels, and on the Spiritual Exercises of St Ignatius of Loyola.
It is a Jesuit-Lay ministry committed to accompanying others in the Ignatian way of prayer and discernment and providing the ambience of a sanctuary of grace where all who come can experience God’s love, forgiveness, gentleness, mercy, joy, delight in all things and see all things in God.
Retreats at MARANATHA are focussed on God , and about God’s direct and personal relationship with you.
A generous disposition of gratitude to God’s generosity and graced gifts
A respectful presence of welcome to the praying community present at the retreat with you.
A commitment to reading of Scripture contemplatively
An interior and exterior silence and stillness open to “ ..know that I am God” (Psalm 46:10)
Directed Prayer Retreats are meant for individuals who have an understanding of Ignatian spirituality and the way of praying and discerning as taught by St Ignatius. They should be comfortable with silence, and are able to pray within a structured time frame on their own. It is advisable for an individual to have experienced an individually guided retreat before undertaking an 8-day retreat.
The person making a Directed retreat should be able to articulate the affect of the prayer to the Spiritual Companion during spiritual direction.
Directed retreats are limited to a maximum of 6 persons in single occupancy.
The guided day (one night) is available to individuals wanting to spend time with God, guided by a MARANATHA spiritual companion in the way of praying taught by St Ignatius of Loyola. Limited to a maximum of six persons per spiritual companion.
Conference Prayer Retreats are preached retreats. There will be presentations each day, time for individual prayer and reflection, and opportunity to be guided by the facilitator and spiritual companion. Conference retreats help to introduce the retreatant to exterior and interior silence, and to make a sacred space where God can engage them in closer relationship with Him.
