The Manoir seeks to contribute to the renewal and transformation of Canadian society for the greatest possible good of individuals and families. It does this by providing people from all walks of life with a spiritual, intellectual and human formation that awakens in them the awareness of their potential and their unique mission in society. Through this formation individuals learn to become leaders, persons of integrity and virtue who seek to lead lives of love, service and faith.
The Manoir is used all year around for a wide variety of activities.
Spiritual retreats aim at helping participants build the strength needed to make one’s Faith the foundation of daily activity.
Leadership seminars for students to integrate excellent work skills, with intellectual and character traits imbued with a spirit of service.
Workshops on family issues geared at helping parents understand the importance of family life and values, and of raising them to be mature and morally upright members of society.
Professional Development Workshops which analyze ethical issues linked to different professions in light of the Church’s moral teaching.
Theology and Philosophy Workshops constitute one of the main ways for men and women from across the country to obtain the preparation they need to carry out carry out similar activities in the different Canadian cities where they live. These many and varied activities, in turn, benefit thousands of Canadians across the country who participate in them every year.
There is also a yearly family day held at the Manoir.
In sum, the Manoir serves as an incubator that provides participants with the preparation and help they need to become a force for positive social change, each one in his own professional family and social milieu.
