The Mercy Center is an oasis for personal healing, professional development, and soul-mending. Clergy, religious, lay leader, and missionaries from around the world have come to benefit from the Holistic Medical Network Model that guides our program design and all activities sponsored at the Mercy Center for Healing the Whole Person. Our Spirituality of Mercy embraces the call to holiness as we share daily morning prayer, Eucharist, community meals, opportunities for recreation and play, Veneration of the Cross, and Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament with Intercessory Prayer for our missionary family and friends world-wide. Investments in personal and professional growth, the art of self care, faith and spiritual development are signs of good stewardship as we usher into the next generation Christian men and women who are healthy and full of mercy and desire to “live life to the full.” (John 10:10)
