Rachel’s Vineyard Retreats are healing retreats that present the opportunity for women and men who have struggled with the emotional or spiritual pain of abortion to experience God’s forgiveness and mercy. The weekend also presents an opportunity to surface and release repressed feelings of anger, shame, guilt and grief. Each weekend is led by both trained professionals and individuals who have personally experienced abortion. The retreat team consists of non-abortive and post-abortive persons, a priest, and a licensed counselor. The Rachel’s Vineyard New Orleans site will be facilitated through Access Pregnancy Centers. A Rachel’s Vineyard retreat will be held November 15-17 2013 at Rosaryville Retreat Center in Ponchatoula, Louisiana. Fr. Joseph Palermo will be the spiritual advisor for the retreat.
