Thank You to Our Generous Supporters!


Thank you to the many people that have supported Knowles Mercy Center over the last 30 years, not only with your monetary donations but also those that have participated in programs and retreats and those that have volunteered whether at events, working the grounds, doing mailings or any other much needed tasks.

After much prayer and careful discernment, the Community Leadership Team of the Sisters of Mercy West Midwest Community have made a difficult decision. While they value the ministry of spirituality and retreat work, they determined that they can no longer continue to operate Knowles Mercy Spirituality Center. The ministry will close July 31, 2017.
