Postcard from Venlo: Retreat house "Manresa"

Postcard from Venlo: Retraitenhuis (Retreat House) 'Manresa'

Men who wanted to go into retreat could do so in retreat house Manresa in Venlo. Manresa, run by Jesuits, was in use from 1908 until 1973, for men only.

This postcard was sent in March 1921, by someone who was in retreat here. It shows the recreation room of Manresa, with in the background the billiard room.

That's interesting - there was a Manresa near where I grew up in Michigan. We would drive past often. As I recall, it was Jesuit or something. Nobody seemed to know - we said it was where the priests went to "dry out"!!! Haven't thought of that place in years.
