A quiet place ...

        is something one doesn't find often enough in today's world. Yet, it's vital to those seeking to deepen their awareness of God to explore Christian spirituality and to investigate their own lives. Mercy Prayer Center is just that place. 

Nestled on a wooded acre near Highland Park in Rochester is the home of Mercy Prayer Center , built in the early 1860s. Conducted by the Sisters of Mercy, the Prayer Center has a lovely chapel which can accommodate 30 to 40 people comfortably; 12 bedrooms, large living and dining rooms and a beautiful library.

The welcoming doors of Mercy Prayer Center seek to provide a warmth of hospitality and a supportive environment of solitude for all who come. It is the perfect place to get away from TV, telephones and daily routines so one can encounter God.

In responding to God's presence, one finds a joy and peace that only solace can bring. Many say it's a gift to leave Mercy Prayer Center rested and refreshed with a renewed strength for dealing with daily life and responsibilities.

Mercy Prayer Center invites you to the soothing stillness of a place apart to see, hear, and feel the wonders of God's love. Accommodations can be arranged for stay of a few hours, overnight, or several days.
