Rachel's Vineyard

Our Lord wants you to experience healing. Prayerfully consider attending a Rachel's Vineyard Retreat.

Rachel's Vineyard is a safe place to renew, rebuild and redeem hearts broken by abortion. Weekend retreats offer 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.

Rachel's Vineyard Retreats

The retreats are held at the Augustine Center in Conway, Michigan. The cost per participant is $150. A deposit of $50 is required. The remaining balance is due ten days prior to the retreat. Make checks out to: Diocese of Gaylord.

If you are suffering from an abortion, there is hope and mercy found in the Sacrament of Reconciliation. Go to Jesus - He is your strength! For more information, contact Jane at 231.675.1715, or Kristyn at 231.838.8383,

Prayer for Healing

Eternal Father,
Source of all mercy and love,
out of love for us you sent your Son,
and willed that blood and water
flow from his side to cleanse us of sin
and restore lost innocence.

Hear the cry of each woman who mourns
the loss of her child to abortion.
Forgive her sin, restore her to your grace,
and still the terror of her heart
with a peace beyond all understanding.
Through the intercession
of the Blessed Virgin Mary,
Mother of all tenderness and our Mother,
strengthen her faith in you.
Give her the consolation to believe
that her child is now living in the Lord.
We ask this through Christ our Lord,
who conquered sin and death,
and who lives and reigns with you,
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
