The Welcome Home Initiative© ministers healing for military veterans who have served their country in combat or any other service context that has caused suffering in varying degrees from post-traumatic stress or moral injury, and are in need of soul repair. Spouses too are welcome and encouraged to participate.
Our program helps veterans and spouses understand the hidden impact of combat and trauma, and provides a safe place for emotional healing. This essential spiritual and emotional healing is a complement to healing received from psychiatric and social services.
The next retreat is the WHI Women's Retreat July 8-10, 2021.
The public is most cordially invited to attend the closing ceremony of this retreat which honors those who attended the retreat and their service to our country.
Saturday, July 10, 2021 | 10:00 a.m. | The Chapel of St. Michael & All Angels
"I led a life of objectifying women and lust. These sisters healed me and laid hands on me casting out the spirits that had a hand in crushing them. This retreat has me looking at women through the eyes of Christ." ~David
"Thank you for all your prayers. Thank you for all you do for the women and men from the military. I have gotten back into recovery mode. God bless you all." ~Jay
"It was an awesome retreat...miracles happened...I can't speak for other vets...I left a different man. A better man. I love you all. Thank you. If I get invited back, I'll come.
One thing I did learn is you can't fight yourself. I tried to be in control of my anger and depression and my other issues. I had to give it up, to surrender. I got it now. Give it up. Don't hold on to it. Stop fighting yourself. It works. Not easy, but it works." ~Dell
