Well of Mercy invites Teachers, Principals, and Support Staff for a "Day in Nature".
TAKE A DEEP BREATH, EXHALE AND LET GO. This time is designed for School Employees to take an afternoon apart. We are opening on Martin Luther King Monday especially for you. This is special afternoon for you. Please register early.
Well of Mercy is the place where you can relax, reflect, restore and take some time to enjoy and reconnect with nature. This "Afternoon in Nature" gives you an opportunity to feel the solid earth beneath your feet, to walk the quiet wooded trails, walk the Prayer Path, visit the Prayer Stations, walk the Labyrinth or quietly sit in the Chapel. In addition, registered guests may enjoy the Gazebo, Laura's Place, Grotto, and rocking chairs on the Well House Porch.
Due to an abundance of caution, these indoor spaces are not available during day visit: Well House, Guest Houses/Cottages, Peace Room.
All visits are limited to adults 21 years of age and older and must be scheduled in advance.
