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.
Walking the Labyrinth
Way of the Cross
Stations of the Cross
Walking a prayer walk is no ordinary stroll – it’s a journey back in time to the Passion of Christ. The beautiful Stations on the campus of Mercy Center Auburn invite you to reflect on the events leading up to Jesus’ death.
Take some time to journey through the Stations of the Cross during your visit to our beautiful grounds.
A Ministry of Hospitality
Support Our Ministry
It is through the generosity of our donors that Mercy Center Auburn is able to continue the mission of the Sisters of Mercy to “offer and support opportunities to enhance the life of prayer and spiritual growth of persons and communities.” Your donation allows us to provide scholarships and make ongoing improvements to our Center in an effort to accommodate our many guests. You will be remembered in the prayers of the staff and Sisters as we celebrate over 20 years of retreat ministry.
“Hospitality is not to change people but to offer them space where change can take place. It is not a method of making our God and our way into the criteria for happiness, but the opening of an opportunity to others to find their way to God and their way. The paradox of hospitality is that it wants to create emptiness – a friendly emptiness where strangers can enter and discover themselves as created free – to sing their own song, speak their own language, dance their own dance.” (Henri Nouwen)
