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.
