Female abuse victims invited to retreat
July 10, 2019
“The Way,” a healing retreat for female survivors of abuse, will be offered August 9-11 by the Diocese of Grand Island in collaboration with the Archdiocese of Omaha and the Diocese of Lincoln.
The retreat, developed and led by Sue Stubbs, victim assistance coordinator for the Archdiocese of Atlanta, is centered around the Stations of the Cross and examines the steps Christ took to overcome dread, confusion, hurt, anger and betrayal in his own experience of abuse that culminated in his death on the cross.
The guided meditations and prayers, facilitated by a retreat team of professional counselors, volunteers and a priest, are meant to help victims of abuse walk the way of the cross as they overcome the physical, emotional and spiritual wounds of their own abuse.
The retreat will be held at Overlook Lodge at Camp Comeca in Cozad, Nebraska. Cost is $250 and includes private room, meals, retreat materials and program. Women of all faiths and traditions are invited to attend. For an application, contact Elizabeth Heidt Kozisek at 308-382-6565 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Deadline is Aug. 1.
