A Beachfront Conference and Retreat Center for Human Development
Waves lapping the shore . . . towering trees shading the path . . . deep quiet punctuated only by the rustle of leaves, a coastal breeze and the birds and animals who live nearby. It’s these 38 acres of natural beauty that enable Mercy Center to offer such a uniquely hospitable space for exploration of the human spirit in all its fullness.

Join us on your own or with a special someone, for a scheduled program or simply for time away. Or bring a group to which you belong for an offsite meeting that requires a different kind of space. Come for an evening, a day, a weekend or a longer retreat or sabbatical.

Welcome to Mercy Center. Relax into the peace. And wake up to all the possibilities.

Mercy Center at Madison, a sponsored work of the Sisters of Mercy, is a conference and retreat center for human development. We offer a hospitality that reveres the value and uniqueness of each person, and host and develop programs that enhance the quality of life in a changing world.

  • Directed retreats and sabbaticals to fit the time you have available.
