If you’re suffering in silence from an abortion decision, you’re not alone. Many women and men are locked into internal prisons of emotional and spiritual pain, afraid to reveal to anyone their deep secret.

We invite you to reclaim your freedom at a Rachel’s Vineyard weekend retreat. Every aspect of the weekend is designed to restore God’s mercy, compassion and grace in place of feelings of shame, guilt, anger and grief.
Come on a retreat. April 17-19, 2020. Let the healing begin.
