Retreat Life at Mercy

Our retreat program provides our students a unique opportunity to share their experiences in a trusting atmosphere. On retreat, each student deepens her faith and enriches her awareness of self, family, relationships, creation and God. She does this through various collaborative activities, personal reflection and discussion with students, alumnae and faculty. Christian values, which empower young women, act as the backbone of Mercy's retreat program.

Freshman Retreat


Students reflect on their personal dreams for the future with regards to their Judeo-Christian faith tradition, and are acclimated more closely to the mission of the Sisters of Mercy. They determine what things and actions need to take place for those dreams to be realized during their time as a Mercy student.
