Spring Sabbatical 2024

A Retreat for Women Religious

March 17 – May 5, 2024

“And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.” Anaïs Nin

We at Mercy by the Sea are delighted to announce the continuation of our Spring Sabbatical program in 2024 for women religious. This is a time for rest, prayer and reflection, solitude, and community with sisters from various geographies. Trusting that God is at work in our lives and is as close to us as our hearts, this sabbatical will be self-directed with guidance from a staff mentor. In this welcoming atmosphere of simplicity and beauty, we will extend to you a hospitality and spaciousness that nurtures relationship with the Sacred in self, others and creation. 

Spring Sabbatical is limited to 10 persons who will enjoy sweeping views of Long Island Sound from rooms in the main house and Seascape, a separate but elegant house on the grounds of Mercy by the Sea. Registration will open in September 2023. 

If you are longing for “the something more,” are exhausted from the demands of ministry, or are looking to refocus life and refresh your relationship with God, we invite you to join us for this sacred time of rest, renewal and reflection.
