"We are never more than one grateful thought away from peace of heart."
Brother David Steindl-Rast

Don't we all desire peace in our hearts and world?

Come and join us for a "peace full" day, a time in which we can reflect on all that we have been given and learn some gratefulness practices. Come and allow music, poetry and the beauty of nature to awaken our senses and nurture our spirits.

There will be opportunities for enjoying art or creating it, walking the labyrinth or taking an "art walk" along the hallowed halls of Mercy Center.
