Retreat Centers

"In silence and quiet, the devout soul becomes familiar with God."--Catherine McAuley

The Sisters of Mercy sponsor retreat and spiritual centers across the United States and in some Central American countries.  These places of quiet and prayer offer space and the opportunity to withdraw from the busyness of life to reflect on and deepen one’s personal relationship with God. Many are located in rural or pastoral settings where nature can be enjoyed in any season.

Programs include days of reflection focused on specific themes, longer periods of time for directed or private retreats featuring formal presenters, and weekends or workshops on a broad range of topics. These offerings may focus on the season, or on a particular human experience such as grieving or preparation for acceptance of a change in one's life.
