Advent Lectio from Saint Mary by-the-Sea - 1st Sunday

"I will raise up for David a just shoot ;
he shall do what is right and just in the land.
In those days Judah shall be safe
and Jerusalem shall dwell secure;
this is what they shall call her:
“The LORD our justice.” - Jeremiah 33: 15 -16

What stirs in your heart as you read these words from Jeremiah? How are we being called to "do what is right and just in the land?"




Ocean of Grace, Tides of Transformation – that is how God moves and works at Saint Mary by-the-Sea Retreat House. Spiritual rejuvenation begins the moment you arrive!

For more than 107 years, Saint Mary has been a place where all who gathered have been able to drink from the well of God's abundant love. Nourish and enrich your soul with the solitude and peace offered on this holy ground.  

My prayers is that God will gift all who journey here with a spirit of renewal, unity, and reconciliation so that all may be one.

                                            Joan Dollinger, Administrator






Come and be still. Receive the ocean of grace and
tides of transformation
awaiting you at Saint Mary by-the-Sea!
