Rachel’s Vineyard Ministries Retreats are a beautiful healing opportunity for anyone struggling with the emotional or spiritual pain of an abortion. The retreat weekend is a very specific process designed to help you experience the love, mercy, compassion, and forgiveness of God. It allows you to surface and release repressed feelings of anger, shame, guilt and grief. It enables suffering souls to find a voice and transform the pain of the past into love and hope. Emptying the grief to make room for the Grace of God is the work of Rachel’s Vineyard. Each weekend is held in a confidential setting.
