After-abortion healing retreat returns after hiatus Archives

April 13, 2022

SARANAC LAKE – After a two-year hiatus due to covid restrictions, Rachel’s Vineyard After-Abortion Healing retreat will be offered in our diocese this fall.

This year, the retreat will be held Sept. 2-4. Usually, the retreat is held at the Guggenheim Lodge. This time, it will be at the Guggenheim Center, the dorm side, which will allow for more participants and a bonfire. With this new retreat location, each participant will have his or her own room for privacy and social distancing.

The team is eager to welcome women and men to the beautiful location. The same team will be serving: Father Mark Reilly, chaplain; Dale Barr, facilitator; Vickie Agresta, clinician/counselor; Colleen Miner, coordinator; John Miner, team member; and Michele Tucker, cook.

The three-day retreat begins Friday evening and concludes Sunday with closing Mass. The cost of $150 includes lodging, meals and all retreat materials.

The retreat offers the opportunity for daily Mass and the sacrament of reconciliation. While it is a Catholic retreat, all faiths are welcome.

If you or someone you know is suffering after an abortion loss, don’t suffer alone. Hope and healing is available.
