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.

Featured Program

Dance in the Forest: Thomas Merton & Eco-spirituality (onsite)

As a Trappist monk and mystic, Thomas Merton experienced the goodness of creation and the gifts of nature. This was especially true in his meditation and praying of the Psalms, as well as his appreciation of the creatures that graced his hermitage near the monastery. Out of his prayerful awareness, Merton developed a passionate concern for the planet. In this day of reflection, Merton will be our guide as we recreate, renew and recover the gifts of the earth before us. Let us join in the dance of creation! Lunch included. Learn more and register HERE.
