Sign up to Pray for Rachel’s Vineyard

January 16, 2018

Dear friends,

Sr Andrea, alongside some others, will be running another Rachel’s Vineyard post abortion healing retreat on the first weekend of February.

These retreats are always very powerful for those attending and also for those helping to run.

We’re always blessed to have so many praying for the success of the retreat and for those attending. Please pray that they may have the courage to come, they will be open and that they receive the healing they have been yearning for. Keep also those running the retreat in your prayers.

We would like to invite you to support us in prayer once more.

Please commit to praying a rosary (or several) for this intention and use the link below to mark your prayer intentions so we can make sure each day is covered.

Thank you and God Bless.


Rachel’s Vineyard Retreat in November

September 29, 2017

Rachel’s Vineyard is a safe place to renew and rebuild your life after experiencing the trauma of abortion. The healing weekends offer a supportive, confidential and non-judgemental environment where women and men can deal with painful post-abortive emotions. 

A Rachel’s Vineyard weekend retreat for spiritual and emotional healing after abortion will be held north of Glasgow on Tuesday 7th – Thursday 9th November.  This confidential, supportive retreat is powerful for anyone who has been affected by their own or someone else’s abortion experience. For more information, please call Sr Andrea on 07816 942824 or email Marene via the enquiry form on the website 

Rachel’s Vineyard Retreat in June

April 22, 2017

The next Rachel’s Vineyard retreat in the West of Scotland will take place in June (13th-15th). This is a retreat for those who have been involved with abortion and are struggling afterwards. Open to women who have had abortions themselves, men who have lost a child through abortion, anyone who has been involved in an abortion decision (for example friends or family members) and healthcare workers who have taken part in abortion. Through companionship, prayer and activities based on passages of scripture, this retreat takes you on a journey from despair to hope. It is amazing to see the transformation that takes place in those who attend the retreats. The retreats are Christian based but are open to people of all faiths and no faith.

There is more information on the Rachel’s Vineyard website

If anyone would like to go on the retreat, please get in touch with Sr Andrea (phone: 07816 942824, email: All contact is kept confidential.

Also please keep this retreat in your prayers- that those who are hurt by abortion will be brave enough to come and seek healing and will apply to come on the retreat, that the team leading the retreat will be blessed in their preparations and that God will work in the hearts of all those involved.

Grief to Gracee

February 7, 2017

Please also pray for the participants and team of a Grief to Grace retreat which is happening right now. Grief to Grace is a specialised 5-day programme of spiritual and psychological healing for anyone who has suffered sexual, physical, emotional or spiritual abuse in childhood, adolescence or adulthood. The programme was devised by the same psychologist who created the Rachel’s Vineyard programme, and is incredibly, wonderfully transformative.
