Spiritual care for your soul: OUR MISSION

Mercy Center is a ministry of the Sisters of Mercy of the Americas, West Midwest, an order of Catholic women religious. Mercy Center was established in 1981 in Burlingame, California, as a retreat center and a conference center for religious and non-religious nonprofit organizations.

Mercy Center provides opportunities for people to become more attentive to the presence of the Divine in their lives and in the world, and then respond with care for the Earth and service to others, especially people who are poor and vulnerable.

Mercy Center Director​

Dear Friends of Mercy Center,

We are OPEN and keeping busy with lots of online programs and virtual prayer services. The Burlingame Campus is still closed.

Please call the office at 650-340-7474 or call me directly at 650-340-7492 from 9am-5pm PT. Our email is – we will respond as quickly as we can.

We pray that someday soon we will open the doors to the Center once again.  Until then,  join us in this “deepening season” and find a community of support as we pray, meditate, and learn online.

Please sign up for our email list to be informed of upcoming programs and updates.

Blessings, Mary
