About Mercy Spirituality Center
Mercy Spirituality Center is a retreat center for people of all faiths, committed to the belief that each of us needs time apart to find, deepen, or refresh our connection to what matters most in life. We are deeply grateful to be able to offer our beautiful space to the community for rest and reflection. Located just one block from Highland Park, Mercy Spirituality Center is an affordable place to host meetings, workshops and retreats. We invite your group or organization to experience time apart in our serene environment to reflect, learn, and share.
13th Annual Summer Institute
Theme: The Spirituality of 12 Steps: Facing our Addictions
Our Summer Institute will focus this year on deepening your spirituality
as you develop a richer understanding using the 12 steps as a course of action.
You may be acquainted with the twelve-step program used in Alcoholics Anonymous and in other programs dealing with addictions. Sometimes described as a journey from your head to your heart, the 12-step program is truly a life-giving spiritual approach for everyone. By fully realizing the power of the spirituality behind the 12 steps, you will discover an inner peace, a gift that only our higher power can give. We hope that you will obtain insight by learning more about the spirituality behind the steps.
