Rachel’s Vineyard

A Retreat for Post-Abortion Healing
National Hotline and Website

A voice is heard in Ramah, mourning and great weeping. Rachel weeping for her children and refusing to be comforted because her children are no more. This is what the Lord says: Restrain your voice from weeping and your eyes from tears.
There is hope for your future, declares the Lord.

Jeremiah 31:15-16

Our Mission

The mission of Rachel’s Vineyard is to provide a haven where men and women can come in order to heal from the traumatic wound of abortion. Because abortion is often kept secret, these men and women may have never explored its effect or resolved the grief, sorrow and anger than can follow abortion. Rachel’s Vineyard is provided in a weekend retreat format. The retreat process is first and foremost a journey of faith. Rachel’s Vineyard is rooted in the Lord Jesus Christ.

On the Weekend...

The primary emphasis on the weekend retreat is entering and moving through the process of grief, recognizing and dealing with anger, mourning the lost child, renewing a spiritual life through the Living Scripture exercises and developing a spiritual relationship with the aborted children. The meditations and rituals will reveal God’s compassion and forgiveness and invite repentance and reconciliation.
Those who are willing to journey through their grief will experience the power of resurrection in their own lives. They will find meaning in what has happened and allow God to transform the experience into something that gives hope, liberation and peace.
