Mercy Center

The Mercy Center Retreat House sits on a large parcel of land, 
tucked away in a suburb outside of Saint Louis, MO.

It is a Roman Catholic Center that serves people from all disciplines of faith.
Individuals and groups might stay for extended times.

Some courses are offered by outside interests,
some by the sisters themselves.

I used to visit an artist friend of mine in her studio there.
It has grown A LOT over the years . . . 
 
Today I want to show you the labyrinth.
It's tucked away towards the back of the property.
I think walking there is the fun part. 
Imagine living in a place, surrounded by gorgeous trees . . . 
Entrance
a little sign gives tips
a little walk-about removed from the world
strolling back to the car - there are sights of hope - here and there
the center may be busy,
filled with all kinds of chatter

but quiet corners can be found,
if one wants to "get away"
and
"call home"
