Womens Retreats

Women’s Retreats

The Entering Canaan Ministry consists of:

  • Beginning the Journey: Days of Prayer & Healing, the message of hope for those hurting.
  • Fighting the Battles: Monthly Gatherings (groups) addressing specific post abortion issues.
  • Hope & Healing Weekends: delving more deeply into the wounds of shame, grief, anxiety, self hatred, anger and other post abortion manifestations.
  • Special Gatherings: Advent, Mother’s Day, and other times that may be particularly painful for those who have lost a child through abortion.
  • Mercy Retreats: Yearly renewal retreats to aid in continued growth and healing emotionally and spiritually.

All locations listed may not participate in all of the components of Entering Canaan. Please check with them for their offerings.

In light of Covid 19 many of the retreats listed below have been cancelled. Please check with the locations for a future date.
