Spring Sabbatical 2025

For Women Religious

March 16 – May 4, 2025

“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

Mercy by the Sea is delighted to announce our Spring Sabbatical program in 2025 for women religious. This is a time for rest, prayer and reflection, solitude, and community with sisters from various geographies and religious communities. 

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 accompaniment from the Mercy by the Sea Sabbatical team. 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 the beauty of being on 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 2024. The cost of the sabbatical is $9,000 which includes a $300 non-refundable deposit due with the application. 

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.
