Rachel’s Vineyard Retreats

Rachel’s Vineyard weekend retreats are a beautiful opportunity for any woman or man who has struggled with the emotional or spiritual pain of an abortion. During the weekend, we gather as the suffering Body of Christ and minister to each other in His name. We share spiritual exercises focusing on God’s forgiveness, compassion and mercy. There are psychological exercises that help work through repressed grief and anger and many rituals to help you grieve the loss of your unborn child and accept God’s forgiveness. The sacrament of reconciliation is also available. The retreat concludes with a memorial service and Mass of Resurrection.
If you or a friend are hurting from an abortion, please call the toll-free national hotline 877-HOPE-4-ME or in the Diocese of Springfield call 413-452-0661.
Retreats are held throughout the year in many states. The retreat and registration are strictly private! All inquiries will be answered confidentially.
