"The Rachel's Vineyard Retreat experience provides a wonderful opportunity for the healing ministry of Jesus to continue in our Church. Psychologically and spiritually, we know the deep effect that abortion has on all those involved, particularly the parents and especially the woman who has made this decision. Christ reaches out to all who need healing and Rachel's Vineyard is a beautiful way to extend the healing ministry of Christ to women and men who need his compassion and love. I am grateful to the retreat team who are so willing to walk with those who seek healing and grace. What a great ministry for our Church to concretely bring the love of Jesus to His people!" -Bishop Mitchell Rozanski, Archdiocese of Baltimore
Project Rachel is a safe place to renew, rebuild and redeem hearts broken by abortion. Weekend retreats offer you a supportive, confidential and non-judgmental environment where women and men can express, release and reconcile painful post-abortive emotions to begin the process of restoration, renewal and healing.
Project Rachel can help you find your inner voice. It can help you experience God's love and compassion on a profound level. It creates a place where men and women can share, often for the first time, their deepest feelings about abortion. You are allowed to dismantle troubling secrets in an environment of emotional and spiritual safety.
Project Rachel is therapy for the soul. Participants, who have been trapped in anger toward themselves or others, experience forgiveness. Peace is found. Lives are restored. A sense of hope and meaning for the future is finally discovered.
