Peace and Spirituality Center

Peace is God's gift to us, given in Christ
(Constitution 1)

The Peace and Spirituality Center is a ministry of the Sisters of St. Joseph of Peace. Rooted in our spirit of peace through justice, the mission of the Center is to offer a place of peace, prayer, beauty and hospitality to all who seek renewal of spirit.

Located on the shores of Lake Washington in Bellevue, our Peace and Spirituality Center at St. Mary-on-the-Lake provides the perfect setting for retreats, workshops, and meetings with serene, spacious rooms, great views, and up-to-the-minute technology.

Our nine-acre, lake-front property is secluded and wooded, with paths through the woods and to the lake where a dock with benches offers views of Mt. Rainier, Mercer Island and Olympic Mountain sunsets.
