About Us

Mercy by the Sea Retreat and Conference Center is a sacred space located on the shores of Long Island Sound. We are committed to helping individuals and groups nurture a relationship with the Sacred in self, others and creation, and to working towards a just and compassionate world.  We do this through the hospitality that we offer and the variety of experiential programs, retreats and events that open up space to explore Celtic Christianity, the feminine divine, contemplation, spiritual direction, creative expression and many other areas.

We support personal and societal transformation fully believing that the changes that one person experiences and lives into, impacts wide change.

We also extend Mercy hospitality to all those who come through our doors. In Mercy by the Sea, the inspiration and dedication to service of Catherine McAuley, Sisters of Mercy foundress, not only lives on but also remains relevant — indeed vital.

Come to Mercy by the Sea Retreat and Conference Center.  Explore a new way of being. Nourish your spirit. Savor the silence and Mercy hospitality.
