Rachel's Vineyard Ministry -- a post-abortion ministry offering emotional healing -- will host its next weekend retreat Aug. 8 to 10.

The weekend is designed for post-abortive men and women as well as grandparents, surviving siblings and anyone who has personally been affected by an abortion decision. The ministry also welcomes medical personnel or other individuals who have formerly worked in the abortion industry.

Rachel's Vineyard Ministries was founded by psychotherapist Theresa Burke. The weekend meshes religion and psychology into an intense, emotional, supportive and non-judgmental process.

The Rachel's Vineyard team has speakers available to further explain this topic and share their experience and healing.

For more information, contact Rachel's Vineyard Ministry at (877) 447-4383 or by e-mail at rachelsvineyard@salinadiocese.org. Retreat registration deadline is July 31.
