Rachel’s Vineyard

Healing the pain of abortion… A weekend full of the Love and Mercy of God.

Rachel’s Vineyard is a safe place to renew, rebuild and redeem hearts broken heart by abortion. Weekend retreats offer you a supportive, confidential and non-judgmental environment where women and men that have battled with the emotional and spiritual pain produced by abortion can express, release and reconcile painful post-abortive emotions to begin a process of restoration, renewal and healing.

During this weekend you will have the opportunity to experiment God’s Mercy and Compassion through a very specific process that will help you release your feelings of anger, shame, guilt and pain that have been repressed for a very long time. In this process you will be accompanied by very involved volunteers that understand your needs and share your own pain. You will also have the opportunity to escape the pressure of daily life and will be able to open your indescribable wounds to the Grace of God.

Testimonies

“The abortions left a big whole inside of me and I felt that nothing would be able to fill me up. When I arrived in Rachel’s Vineyard I felt safe and was able to trust and open my heart. That weekend I was able to reconcile with myself, I was able to forgive myself, to forgive others and now I can say that everything is different. This experiene marked a before and after that save my life.”

“For me, Rachel’s Vineyard was a step from death into a new life of forgiveness and reconciliation with God, discovering and feeling his Mercy. The healing that I felt during that weekend and afterwards, turned my life around and I was able to find the maternity that I had lost due to the abortions.”

“Rachel’s Vineyard healed many aspects of my life, past wounds that still made me suffer deeply. Through the Love or Our Lord, I was able to forgive myself for all my faults and I learned to see myself like a pure human being worthy of his love. Now I know that my son loves me, that he forgives me and that he is with the Lord. Now I can love him too even though I don’t have him physically beside me. Glory be to the Lord for bringing the Vineyard into my life.”

“Coming to Rachel’s Vineyard was the best decision for our marriage. We were going through a bad time because the effects of sin had trapped us in despondency, depression and desolation. The retreat was very good for us, every moment we lived there was able to fill us up with much peace, mercy and hope. Now we see our future in a completely different way from the wat we looked at it before and we know now that holding Jesus and Our Blessed Mother by the hand we will be overcome everything in faith and hope. Thanks to the coordinators team and to the friends we have found in this retreat. We don’t find enough words to thank you!”

“You have made us for yourself, oh Lord, and our hearts are restless, until they can find rest in you.”
