Save the date! The Annual Lumina Advent Dinner is scheduled for Thursday, December 4th at 6:00 PM at the Hilton Westchester in Rye Brook, New York. We are blessed to have as our honoree, Linda Cochrane, developer of the first post-abortion recovery program, “Forgiven and Set Free.” She also co-authored “Healing a Father’s Heart,” a post-abortion Bible study for men.
Lighting the Way to Christ & Healing promises to be an inspiring evening and an opportunity to help our Lumina program grow and reach many more souls who seek God’s merciful healing.

“Faith is not a light which scatters all our darkness, but a lamp which guides our steps in the night and suffices for the journey. To those who suffer, God does not provide arguments which explain everything; rather, his response is that of an accompanying presence, a history of goodness which touches every story of suffering and opens up a ray of light.” (Lumen Fidei – Pope Francis)
“I thought I was crazy. I seemed to be the only one who was having trouble with my abortion. Now I know I am not alone. It is such a relief to know that others are experiencing the same things I am going through… the grief, shame, and guilt. I always thought I was the only one feeling those things. I have hope for the first time.” ~ Kathy
Living with the pain of abortion can be overwhelming. Feelings of anxiety, panic, grief, guilt and shame can often seem insurmountable, but there is a way out of the pain. You do not have to suffer alone! Countless women and men have reached healing through Lumina’s services, which include group programs, referrals to professional therapists, and post-abortion ministries.
Lumina offers healing retreats for women, men, siblings and those who aborted because of an adverse diagnosis. In addition, Lumina provides training for clergy members and mental health professionals in post abortion stress.
We have a network of women and men who have walked through the pain of abortion who are also ready to accompany you through the darkness, into the joy of a renewed life.
Lumina also recognizes the resistance of society to acknowledge your feelings, the result of which can be suppressed emotions leaving the post abortive person with nowhere to turn and a feeling that they are crazy or somehow different from everyone else. Take heart, there is Hope!
Take some time to look around our site and see what Lumina has to offer. We invite you to read the stories of women and men who made the journey to healing.
