The journey to Canaan continues all of our lives until we are united with Jesus and our children in heaven.

Mercy Retreat

“Come aside by yourselves to a
deserted place and rest a while.” Mark 6: 30-31

Once each year, a “Mercy Retreat” takes place, usually held during the Lenten season.  It is a time  for deeper healing, to refresh and renew ourselves in the Lord.

Each years retreat carries with it a different theme, and is open to all those who have gone through healing from Entering Canaan as well as other ministries.

This retreat is an opportunity to spend time with Our Merciful Savior, and deepen our  faith through conferences, adoration, and the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass.

While abortion continues to be addressed, the focus is on growing spiritually in a relationship with God, not only in regard to abortion, but in all areas of our lives.

A new retreat is written  each year, and women from the ministry share in giving the conferences along with the priest who is the Director for the weekend.

Themes of some of the past Mercy retreats:

  • In the Arms of Mary
  • Open Wide Your Heart -entrusting our lives and healing to Christ
  • Contrition and Gratitude
  • The Gift of Faith
  • In the Cross is Salvation
  • Sharing the Heart of Mary
  • Keeping Our Eyes on Christ
  • Entering Canaan
  • Reclaiming Our Children

“Mercy is love that suffers the evil of another to affirm his dignity so that he does not have to suffer alone.” Pope JP II
