The Cypress Springs Mercedarian Prayer Center officially “Opened It’s Door to Christ” in March, 2009. The Ministry Office was the first of three buildings to be completed. This Ministry Office is where Sister Dulce meets with the sick and dying and those searching to grow in their faith as well as in their relationship with God.
The Office also contains the Dolphin Room. This multipurpose room serves as the meeting place for these regularly scheduled events: Tuesday Rosary group, Men’s Spirituality Class, and the Women’s Spirituality Class. It is also used for daily retreats given by Sister Dulce, as well as special events such as, Open House, Children’s Posada at Christmas, and the St. Joseph’s Altar to name just a few. All ofthese events, give the Cypress Springs Mercedarian Prayer Center the opportunity to “Open It’s Door to Christ”by providing interesting and educational events for continual spiritual growth for all who visit.

The second of three buildings is the Mercedarian Sisters of the Blessed Sacrament convent. Today, Sister Dulce and the other Sisters, occupy this new convent which has the capacity to house seven (7) nuns.
