FAQ

What is the cost?

Our cost for the weekend is $200 with a $25 non-refundable application fee. This price includes your room, meals, and all retreat materials. We have financial assistance for those unable to pay the full fee.  No one is turned away because of finances.

How long is the retreat weekend?

The retreat begins on Friday at 4:00 pm with dinner and ends around 3:00 pm on Sunday. It is important to stay the entire retreat so that distractions don’t disrupt the flow of your healing journey.

Who runs the weekend?

Our ministry team consists of a Priest, Therapist and trained lay facilitators who are caring and compassionate individuals. The team works together to provide you with a safe and welcoming atmosphere. Through guidance from the Holy Spirit, our goal is to make your weekend an experience that will bring insight, comfort, and healing.

How many people can be on the weekend?

Because of our facilities, we are limited to 8-10 participants. The group is small so that each retreatant has time for sharing and processing the exercises together. Applications are taken on a first-come first-served basis.

Are Men allowed to attend the weekend?

Yes, after an abortion, men often struggle with a sense of powerlessness, or feeling they failed to protect both mother and child – perhaps abandoning the mother or threatening to leave her if she did not abort. Men share many of the same wounds of shame, guilt, grief and fear as well as the desire for healing.

Is the Rachel’s Vineyard Weekend Confidential?

Yes. When you sign up for a retreat, your name will not be given to any other individual or group for any circumstance. If you choose to be listed on a contact list for the other members of your weekend group, that is your decision. You can inquire about this program by e-mail or telephone, please specify how you would like to receive information. You might also choose to attend a Rachel’s Vineyard weekend that is in a different location from where you live to assure complete anonymity.
