About Us

Mercy by the Sea Retreat and Conference Center, set along the shores of Long Island Sound, is home to diverse eco-systems and wildlife. We seek to inhabit this ground with reverence, humility and joy, and to continually learn from its wildness, wisdom and beauty.  In this welcoming atmosphere of simplicity and beauty, we offer a portal into a deeper reality and opportunities to explore a new way of being. Mercy by the Sea’s experiential programming fosters contemplative practice, challenges participants to holistic growth in an accepting environment, and manifests a commitment to social justice.  We extend a hospitality and spaciousness that nurtures right relationship with the Sacred in self, others and creation. All are welcome. No exceptions. We have been preparing for your arrival.
