Welcome! We are so happy that you will soon be with us on the grounds of Cranaleith Spiritual Center. We will do our best to help you to be renewed and refreshed. In order to balance concern for your health and safety with our mission of hospitality, we have created the following plan.
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 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.

On behalf of the Cranaleith Board of Directors, it is with great pleasure and significant excitement that we announce the appointment of Deborah Kost to be the next Executive Director of the Cranaleith Spiritual Center, effective August 1, 2020.
Marge Worstall is a retreatant who visits our property regularly for walks. We noticed her amazing photos on social media and asked her to share a few with us here.
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.
