A spiritual and emotional journey open to all
Rachel’s Vineyard Retreats offer a beautiful opportunity for healing to anyone who has struggled with the emotional or spiritual pain of abortion.
Forgiveness and healing, including the Catholic sacraments of Reconciliation and Eucharist, are at the heart of these Retreats and they are open to everyone – those of any faith or denomination, as well as those with no formal faith connection.
Spiritually directed exercises focus on God’s forgiveness, compassion and mercy. These help participants acknowledge and work through all their feelings related to the losses around their abortion and come to a new experience of peace and reconciliation.
