Spiritual Direction

The work of the spiritual director is helping people take time to reflect and see God working in their lives.

We, Sisters of Mercy, have been pioneers in creating authentic, integrated formation programs in spiritual direction for lay and ordained people from around the world of every denomination. Our retreat centers are located throughout the United States; Belize and Argentina can connect those seeking spiritual growth with a trained spiritual director who offers wisdom and guidance. Find and connect with one of our centers below.

Formation of Spiritual Directors

Several of our retreat centers also offer integrated formation programs continuing the legacy of the late Sister Mary Ann Scofield, a Sister of Mercy. She was one of the first to initiate a spiritual direction formation program when she co-founded Spiritual Directors International (SDI) in the 1990s. SDI is an international organization that today includes more than 7,000 members worldwide.

We can assist in walking with you on your spiritual journey.

Retreat Centers

We sponsor retreat and spiritual centers across the United States and in some Central American countries. These places of quiet and prayer offer space and the opportunity to withdraw from the busyness of life to reflect on and deepen one’s personal relationship with God.
