Welcome To Mercy By The Sea

Mercy by the Sea believes in the sacred nature of the individual and all of creation. Our programs, retreats and events encourage individuals to listen into and trust the still inner voice. From that place deep longings, creative imagination and fledgling efforts in service of a greater good can emerge, be nurtured and spread in the world.

Come discover a new way of being.

Mercy by the Sea's beautiful grounds; peaceful ambience; tasty, healthy meals; and variety of meeting rooms - accommodating groups as small as 10 individuals or as large as 100 or more - make the Center the perfect setting for your church, non-profit or organization's meeting.
