Pierced by Sorrow, Released into Joy
The loss of a pregnancy or young infant is devastating to both parents. With the loss of a planned future, of anticipated dreams and the lack of support for one’s grief, the trauma of losing a child can remain forever. During the Rabboni Institute’s Pierced retreat, we hope to help you find peace and to recover joy. The day will include sessions on healing the Body, Intellect and Will as well as reconnecting with the Spirit for complete healing. The day will be facilitated by Racheal and Paul Emig, who after the loss of their son, Gregory, found hope again when they attended the Pierced 2015 retreat. The Rabboni Institute is excited Rachael and Paul will be offering their mercy, compassion and hope to all those facing this struggle. $60 per participant ($95 per couple) includes lunch, snacks, materials and the closing healing mass. Each family will also receive a copy of After Miscarriage: A Catholic Woman’s Companion to Healing & Hope by Karen Edmisten.
The healing principles used during the Pierced Retreat are based on traditional medical and psychological practices as well as Catholic theology. However, the retreat is open to non-Catholics as well.
