Post-abortion

2018 Project Rachel Retreat Offers Hope, Healing for Women Suffering from Abortion, Aug. 17-19

Each year, the St. Louis Project Rachel Team sponsors a weekend retreat for women negatively impacted by an abortion experience. The retreat, open to women of any faith background (or none), seeks to start them on a journey of healing and hope, no matter how long it has been.

The 2018 weekend will be held Aug. 17-19 in a comfortable, private setting where retreatants can be assured of pastoral care, confidentiality, and a very welcoming and supportive environment. The silent retreat -- focusing on healing the mind, body, and soul -- offers one-on-one spiritual direction, and also Mass and the Sacrament of Reconciliation if desired.


Registration Information

The cost of the retreat is $200, with a $50 deposit asked for at the time of registration. Financial assistance is available and no one will be turned away due to an inability to pay.
