Manresa Spirituality Center

Speak, LORD, for your servant is listening. (1 Samuel 3: 10)     Mission and Hope “MANRESA” is a sacred place where we may re-encounter our loving Lord and ourselves in greater depth. It is a special Encounter embedded in our memory. There are many who, after their retreat here, carry the beautiful and sweet memory of their communion with the Lord that they cherish for a long time. That is the reason why so many of them like re-visiting MANRESA SPIRITUALITY CENTER in order to refresh themselves and create a new memory of their fresh encounter with our Lord in their prayers, which will inspire, guide, and enlighten their daily life in the world.   “MANRESA” does not merely belong to the Jesuits; it is a precious jewel of the whole Taiwan Church. All the staff in “MANRESA” feel honored to provide excellent and warm service. They hope to offer better service to the participants through this renovation project.    Fundraising context “MANRESA” was designed and built in 1960 according to the need of the Jesuit religious formation. It has been transformed in different ways due to the changes in the needs: religious formation house →retreat house→spirituality center. It underwent a major renovation 20 years ago in order to provide 24 comfortable suite-rooms and some other facilities.   “MANRESA” used to accommodate religious and clerics. There are more and more lay Catholics and lay Protestants who come here and expect different facilities for their spiritual activities and retreats.

Fu Jen Faculty of Theology of St. Robert Bellarmine

  This ecclesiastical faculty of theology was established in Zikawei, Shanghai (China), in 1929, and transferred to Baguio, the Philippines, in 1952. In 1967,according to the spirit of the Second Vatican Council, this Faculty was transferred back to Chinese cultural environment and located next to Fu Jen Catholic University, in Taiwan. Thereafter, according to the wishes of many ecclesiastical Prelates, the Faculty was converted into an Institute of Superior Ecclesiastical Studies open to Jesuit and non-Jesuit students alike. Fu Jen Faculty of Theology of St. Robert Bellarmine is authorized by the Congregation for Catholic Education to confer the academic degrees of Baccalaureate, Licentiate, and Doctorate in Sacred Theology. Indeed, this Faculty of Theology is the only one in the world granted such authority with Mandarin Chinese as the language of instruction.   In 1968, in response to the demonstrated interest and need by the faithful, lay and religious, for study of theology and other sacred sciences for the enrichment of their Christian lives and for exercise of their apostolate more fruitfully in cooperation with clergy, an Institute of Religious Sciences was founded and attached to the Faculty with the authority to award academic degrees.   This Faculty carries out its mission in communion with the universal Church and with particular solicitude for the local Church. The Church’s mission of theological research and education, forming clergy, consecrated religious, and laity, has developed over time from the wisdom of the People of God, under the guidance of the Holy Spirit and in dialogue with, and discernment of, the signs of the times and diverse cultural expressions. Your support for this mission would be greatly appreciated.   Fund Goal Objective Xu Guangqi Scholarship Fund NT$2,500,000 per annum Scholarships for Lay Students Yang Ting-jun Faculty Fund NT$1,200,000 per annum Support for Lay Faculty members Fr.
