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 at this sacred space!

For 107 years, Saint Mary by-the-Sea, a sponsored ministry of the Sisters of Saint Joseph of Philadelphia, has been a place where gathered are able to drink from the well of God's abundant and gracious love. Nourish and enrich your soul with the solitude and peace offered on this holy ground. 

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

Please enjoy our website, where you will find our 2016 retreat offerings, prayers for your journey, the history of Saint Mary by-the-Sea, and pictures to brighten your spirit!
