Rachel's Vineyard Houston, Inc.
Hope and healing begins here...
Rachel's Vineyard Houston, Inc. is a Catholic lay ministry dedicated to helping men and women find healing and renewal after abortion. 

Thus says the Lord:
In Ramah is heard the sound of moaning, of bitter weeping!
Rachel mourns her children,
she refuses to be consoled because her children are no more.
Thus says the Lord:
Cease your cries of mourning, wipe the tears from your eyes.
The sorrow you have shown shall have its reward, says the Lord.
There is hope for your future!

(Jeremiah 31:15-17)

The goal of the weekend retreat is to guide wounded souls on a journey that leads to healing by reuniting them with Christ in a tangible and safe environment.  Those who enter the vineyard for healing will have the opportunity to allow Christ to transform them from an empty and broken vessel to become whole again overflowing with the living water of Christ.  

Now is the time to knock and the door will be opened...

What the Church says about Rachel's Vineyard

 

Jesus Himself said that He came to call sinners and not the self-righteous. I pray that all who participate in Rachel's Vineyard with the longing to be free and to be healed by Jesus, may find Him, the source of true joy, peace and love, and allow God to restore them to wholeness and happiness. I am praying much for you.

I cannot think of another work of this kind so well done. A most difficult and painful human problem is engaged with faith, psychological insight and trust.
