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.

Featured Program

Freedom in Waiting: An Advent Series

Like the Psalmist, we trust in God’s steadfast love and power to deliver.  Advent waiting is not passive.  We enter more intentionally into God’s time.  We are able to welcome waiting as a gift.  In the Bible, salvation is always about freedom from bondage and deliverance into the fullness of life that God intends.  This workshop invites us to marvel at the fresh experiences of new life that are free to emerge even in our waiting!
