Frequently Asked Questions
Our Retreat and Conference Center is conveniently located in Central New Jersey near the shore. ~1 hour east of Philadelphia and ~1.5 hours south of New York City.

While waiting for a train, our founder William Raws sat by the America’s Keswick lake and prayed. Something about the lake led his thoughts back to his native England and to his favorite painting location in Cumbria, Northern England, called Keswick. It was there and then that he decided to name the ministry “Keswick Colony of Mercy.” While England’s Keswick and America’s Keswick have no connection today, the name of our ministry was inspired by England’s Keswick.
It is! The heart of our ministry has always been our Addiction Recovery Ministries, and every event we hold here goes to support the men and women in our programs. We offer a 6-12 month residential Addiction Recovery Program for women (Barbara’s Place) and a 4+ month program for men (The Colony of Mercy.) Click HERE to visit our Addiction Recovery website!
