IMPORTANT MESSAGE ABOUT EAST-WEST PROGRAM

 

Mercy Center remains temporarily closed during this time of sheltering in place. Even so, we seek to remain in strong community with family, friends, and neighbors. Although we cannot meet in person for Wednesday evening sitting meditation for the time being, we are offering live online Wednesday evening meditation gatherings via Zoom.

If you would like to receive information about the program and links to the Zoom meetings:

During this time that Mercy Center is closed to visitors, may we continue to hold its sacred space in our hearts and in our practice.

 

Bows to all,

 

Sr. Judy Cannon, RSM

Mary A. DuQuaine, Mercy Center Director

 

 

LIVE ONLINE: EVENING MEDITATION

Until Mercy Center reopens, Wednesday evening meditation takes place from 7:00–8:30 p.m. PDT in live Zoom sessions led by Sr. Judy Cannon from the Rose Room zendo. Sr. Judy has been studying and practicing meditation since 2000. She has made silent retreats at Mercy Center Burlingame with Fr. Thomas Hand and Fr.
