"The thing the Church needs most today is the ability to heal wounds and to warm the hearts of the faithful; it needs nearness, proximity.  I see the Church as a field hospital after battle.

It is useless to ask a seriously injured person if he has high cholesterol about the level of his blood sugars! You have to heal his wounds.  Then we can talk about everything else.  Heal the wounds.  Heal the wounds."

                                (Pope Francis, 19 Sep 2013)

Rachel's Vineyard is a safe place to renew and rebuild your life after experiencing the trauma of abortion.  The healing weekends offer you a supportive, confidential and non-judgemental environment where women and men can deal with painful post-abortive emotions.

Rachel's Vineyard can help you to 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.
