Sierra Chapel
With a beautiful view of our manicured  grounds, our Sierra Chapel offers private, contemplative space for personal prayer, reflection and worship.

The Chapel can accommodate up to 45 people for services or gatherings. Silence is golden in this space, but there is a piano available. The Chapel can also be used as a meeting space.

  The Labyrinth
The Labyrinth is a spiritual tool. It is used as a walking meditation to assist us in finding peace, managing stress, decision-making, and healing physically, emotionally and spiritually. It represents a journey into our own center and back again into the world. Walking the labyrinth allows us to focus our thoughts and gain clarity and insight into ourselves.

Mercy Center's Labyrinth is open to the public daily, and all are welcome to join us to experience your own contemplative journey.*

We welcome donations to help us landscape and maintain this sacred space. If you would like to contribute, you may make a donation in Mercy Centerís administrative office. Your gift is tax-deductible and greatly appreciated.

*Retreat guests of the Center take precedence when scheduling use of the Labyrinth. Please phone us at 530-887-2019 to inquire about the availability of the Labyrinth, as well as to inform us of your presence on the grounds of Mercy Center prior to walking the Labyrinth.
