Mercy for All Fund
The Mercy for All Scholarship fund provides financial assistance for those who cannot afford the full fee to attend Mercy by the Sea offerings.
Mercy by the Sea Retreat and Conference Center is set along the shores of Long Island Sound in Madison, CT. We offer programs and retreats on topics that include creative expressions of the Spirit, contemplative practices, care of creation, finding the sacred in the everydayness of life and much more. Our aim is to create opportunities to slow down and embrace silence, reconnect with a deeper reality, and encourage exploration of our deepest longings and creative imagination.
Thanks to contributions from generous donors and the Institute of the Sisters of Mercy of the Americas, this place of beauty and peace is available to everyone - regardless of ability to pay. Just this year, the Mercy For All Scholarship Fund has allowed individuals to attend:
- Living Resistance: An Indigenous Vision for Seeking Wholeness Every Day with Kaitlin B. Curtice
- Healing Loss Through Conscious Grieving and Writing with Lisa Irish
- Falling Down and Getting Up: The Practices That Keep Us Human with Mark Nepo
How to Apply
Individuals and groups which would like to request financial assistance are asked to apply by completing a short online form. Once the form is submitted, a staff member from Mercy by the Sea will get in touch.
