Contemplative Practices

Mercy by the Sea offers numerous contemplative programs and retreats. Some, such as Centering Prayer, Mindfulness and Labyrinth Walks are held weekly and/or monthly.  Directed and themed retreats, most of which are held in silence, are scheduled throughout the year.

All focus on deepening our awareness of the Sacred, both within and without.
