Manresa House of Retreats was founded by the Jesuits, officially known as the Society of Jesus, an international organization of priests and brothers in the life of the Catholic Church. Manresa is located in Convent, Louisiana, on the banks of the Mississippi River midway between Baton Rouge and New Orleans. It offers three-day silent retreats for men. Some of the historic and picturesque buildings on the 130-acre campus date from the early 19th Centruy, when Manresa was the site of Jefferson College, a private school for sons of plantation owners. Between the Civil War and the Great Depression the Marist Fathers conducted the college as a Catholic school. The Jesuit Fathers purchased the property in 1931 as the site for a retreat house.
This painting depicts St. Mary's Hall, which is the primary housing complex on the Manresa campus. It is draped by the majestic oak trees and moss giving it a true Southern flare.________________________________________________________________________________
