Mercy Mondays: Faculty, staff invited to attend inaugural Living Mercy Retreat at beautiful seaside location
The Office of Mission Integration invites Salve Regina’s faculty and staff to register for the inaugural Living Mercy Retreat, which will be held Sunday, June 4, through Tuesday, June 6.
This multi-day retreat will give Salve Regina’s faculty and staff the opportunity to share in mindful reflection, prayer, dialogue and community and to explore the charism of mercy within their leadership, teaching and service.
The retreat will take place at Mercy by the Sea Retreat and Conference Center in Madison, Connecticut, approximately 90 minutes from Salve Regina. This oasis is rooted in the tradition of the Sisters of Mercy and located on 33 acres along the Long Island Sound, with ample beachfront, a labyrinth, a short woodland trail and a small-forested wetland area.
Individual rooms will be provided for each participant, and twenty fully funded spots are available for Salve Regina faculty and staff.
The retreat will be facilitated by Sister Sheila Carney, RSM, with a leadership team of Salve Regina faculty and staff. Sister Sheila is special assistant to the president for Mercy Heritage at Carlow University in Pittsburgh, and vice-postulator for the cause for canonization for Catherine McAuley in the Americas.
This inaugural faculty and staff Living Mercy Retreat is made possible through the Professional Development Grant awarded to Salve Regina University from the Network for Vocation in Undergraduate Education (NetVUE) and is co-sponsored by Salve Regina’s Center for Teaching and Learning.
