Healing Retreat Services
Healing support retreats and individual counseling
Abortion can be one of the most traumatic experiences in a person’s life. Feelings of sadness, anxiety, guilt and grief are common, not only for the woman, but for the man involved, for relatives, friends and others.
Catholic Charities recognizes that part of the pain comes from a denied opportunity to grieve the life that was lost. We seek to help individuals make peace with themselves, their children and with God. Guided by a spirit of compassion, we are here to serve as companions on the hope-filled journey of healing.
Rachel’s Vineyard weekend retreats provide an opportunity for any person who has struggled with the emotional or spiritual pain of an abortion. This weekend is designed to help bring support, healing and hope and includes discussion, the sacrament of reconciliation, a memorial service and a Mass of resurrection. Participation is strictly confidential and offers a beautiful opportunity to experience God’s love, forgiveness and compassion. A priest, licensed therapist and supportive team facilitate the retreat.
