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.

take a moment...

A nun I know once told me she kept begging God to take her character defects away from her. After years of this prayer, God finally got back to her: 'I'm not going to take anything away from you, you have to give it to Me.'
