Our Beautiful Location

Mercy By The Sea Retreat & Conference Center

Mercy By The Sea Retreat and Conference Center is a picturesque sea-side location ideal for our intentional, immersive, and intimate leadership train-the-trainer experience. Nestled on the idyllic Long Island Sound in Madison, Connecticut, Mercy is only an hour from Hartford (CT) and Providence (RI) and less than two hours from Boston (MA) and New Jersey / New York City. This is an ideal location for New Englanders and those traveling from afar—especially because we offer *complimentary* airport and train pick-ups/drop-offs!

 

The grounds provide the perfect mix of indoor and outdoor reflective spaces. The natural environment includes gardens, lush tree canopies and flowering bushes, and a labyrinth. Don't forget your bathing suit—there is a private beach which will host our "beach party"! Indoors, Mercy offers a library, chapel and art gallery. We will be sure to make use of all Mercy has to offer during the 5-day Immersion Retreat.

 

The meals at Mercy By The Sea may prove to be a highlight. They pride themselves on serving "food that feeds the soul." Each meal (all meals, snacks, and coffee/tea are included in the cost of the program) are prepared as simple healthy meals made from local and organic produce as much as possible. Mercy serves both hot and cold Continental breakfasts and lunches. The afternoon meal always includes a salad bar, various combinations of soups, sandwiches, and lunch-time entrees—with cookies and fruit as dessert options. Dinners feature a protein, starch, vegetable, tossed salad, bread, and house-made desserts.
