Mercy Center Burlingame California

A Place to Meet in Quiet Beauty

Welcome to Mercy Center Burlingame, a ministry of the Sisters of Mercy. Our peaceful grounds and lovely retreat center, located on a 40-acre site 15 miles south of San Francisco, provide an inviting place to hold your nonprofit conference. Our programs are known for their excellence in contemplative spirituality. The labyrinth, meditation garden, chapel, and book and gift shop are usually available to tour, but we request advance notice for longer visits, and require reservations for overnight stays. Call (650) 340-7474 for further information.
