Rachel’s Vineyard


Rachel’s Vineyard Weekend Retreats are a beautiful opportunity for any person who has struggled with the emotional or spiritual pain of a past abortion.  The weekend is a very specific process designed to help men and women experience the mercy and compassion of God.  In a non-judgmental and safe environment, participants are gently led through the critical steps of healing through scripturally-based spiritual exercises to help persons forgive themselves and others who may have been involved.  The following are some thoughts shared by a former retreatant:

I experienced a great inner healing as a result of attending the Rachel’s Vineyard Weekend.  I highly recommend this retreat to anyone who has felt the grief and shame from the abortion experience.  It is wonderful to forgive yourself, find the unconditional love of Christ and grieve the loss of your little child.


The next Retreat for healing from abortion will be January 25-27, 2019 and will be held once again at The Williamsburg Christian Retreat Center in Toano, Virginia. In this confidential ministry, anyone struggling (mothers, fathers, siblings, etc.) are welcome and invited! All inquiries, registration and retreat participation are strictly confidential! For more information, contact Linda Riva at 757-887-3144 or email: lindajr2@yahoo.com.
