RACHEL'S VINEYARD WEEKEND RETREAT 

A weekend of support for anyone whose life has been impacted by pregnancy loss, abortion, and miscarriage.

Experiences of grief and pain are often unnamed and unspoken but both typically accompany abortion and miscarriage. Although the twp experiences are different in some ways, often there are similar struggles. Women, men, and couples - anyone affected by pregnancy loss - are encouraged to attend the Rachel’s Vineyard Retreat.

Nearly 1 in 4 women and men have been affected by an abortion and 1 in 5 are affected by miscarriage. So often, women and men impacted by pregnancy loss have suffered deep wounds, including powerful feelings of abandonment, shame, anger, and loss. Since there is carefully guarded secrecy around pregnancy loss, these hidden, painful, emotions may cause other struggles such as substance abuse, bonding issues with children, depression, eating disorders, suicidal thoughts, and feelings of unworthiness.

 

If the quality of your life is affected or you have never completely recovered from pregnancy loss, Rachel’s Vineyard Retreat is a place where you can find support, compassion and healing. This international ministry is a confidential, safe place to share your story and discover God’s heart of compassion and mercy. The retreat is a non-denominational, interfaith environment offering Biblical principles and perspectives for restoration.

This retreat is being held at Our Lady of Santa Clara Retreat Center. The financial value of the retreat is $500. However, retreatants are charged only $200 which includes single occupancy accommodations for two nights, all meals, and retreat supplies. Scholarships are available.
