Celebrating 25 Years of Deep Listening at Cranaleith Spiritual Center

Cranaleith, a sanctuary of trees, is a retreat and conference center for those who wish to reflect on what matters deeply in their lives, renew their spirit for life and work, or restore themselves from life’s traumas. Individuals and groups are invited to participate in retreats and other programs in a spirit-rekindling environment of well-being, respect, and harmony. Cranaleith is a sponsored ministry of the Sisters of Mercy.
