Cranaleith Spiritual Center
A Sanctuary of Trees, A Sanctuary of Mercy
Gaelic for “sanctuary of trees,” Cranaleith 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.
Cranaleith is pleased to re-open our campus to 50% capacity effective July 1, 2021. We invite groups of 36 or fewer to schedule your group meetings, staff retreats and team building activities today!
We are committed to remaining accessible to all, especially persons experiencing homelessness, poverty and trauma, and those who work in solidarity with them. The staff looks forward to meeting every group’s needs in the spirit of mercy hospitality.
Cranaleith From Home
Welcome! Although the pandemic has separated us physically, Cranaleith continues to offer itself as a sanctuary for all who seek renewal. We are currently providing resources and spiritual companionship through virtual programs and events, spiritual direction and a weekly electronic newsletter. You are in our thoughts and prayers.
Let us take one day only in hands at a time. Resolve to do good today and better tomorrow.
Yesterday I was clever, so I wanted to change the world. Today I am wise, so I am changing myself.
The happy heart runs with the river, floats on the air, lifts to the music, soars with the eagle, hopes with the prayer.
