Mercy Spirituality Center is a retreat center for people of all faiths. We believe that each of us, individuals and organizations alike, needs time apart to find,
deepen, or refresh our connection to what matters most in life.
We are deeply grateful to be able to offer our beautiful space to the community for rest, reflection and spiritual growth. Our facilitated retreats center around contemplative practice, Ignatian Spirituality and finding God in nature.
We also offer private retreats for groups and individuals.
A Day to Call Your Own opens with an optional communal prayer, then the rest of the day is yours. We provide a private room, a simple lunch, and our beautiful house and grounds for you to explore as you wish.
If you need a little more time in quiet, consider A Retreat to Call Your Own which includes all of the above plus an overnight and pick-up breakfast. Check our calendar for scheduled opportunities.
Located just one block from Highland Park, Mercy Spirituality Center offers 10 private guest rooms, meeting spaces for groups as small as 5 or as large as 35, kitchen and dining facilities along with various dining options dependent on the length and nature of your stay, a richly stocked library,
spacious yard with gazebo and plenty of off-street parking.
Our day-long, mini-weekend and full weekend retreats provide opportunities for slowing down and making space for the more in your life. We offer practices designed to quiet busy minds in order to make room for a deeper and richer experience of the divine.

New Year Directed Retreat
Join us for a directed weekend retreat. This will be a silent retreat with the chance to delve deeper into your prayer relationship with God. It isn’t until we’re silent that we can hear God moving in our lives. Our Spiritual Directors for the weekend will be Pat Lawlor and Giovina Caroscio. You will have time to meet with one of them, who will listen and guide you into making the most of this sacred time with God. All meals are included and will be eaten in silence. The number of spaces for this retreat is limited to 9. Register soon!
Dates: January 26-28, 2024
Time: 7:00 p.m. Friday - noon, Sunday
