Grief or Loss

Come, Find Strength and Peace.

The impact of losing a loved one or suffering a painful life experience can leave us feeling hopeless and broken. Even when years have passed since the initial experience, grief can still be felt on a daily basis. Our retreats and reflections are designed to help those who have lost or are grieving encounter God’s healing presence and peace.


Grief or loss can take many forms. We offer retreat experiences for those suffering from:

  • Bereavement, grief, & loss
  • Spiritual struggles
  • Loss of direction in life
  • Divorce & marriage issues
  • Other challenges

The Lord is close to the brokenhearted, saves those whose spirit is crushed.

“I remember seeing the beautiful grounds and feeling the tranquility in my heart. I knew it was a sacred place—a very holy place to be.”

Maggie DiLolle, Retreatant

A Prayer for Grief & Loss

Dearest Jesus, who wept at the death of your friend and taught that they who mourn shall be comforted, grant us the comfort of your presence in our loss. Send Your Holy Spirit to direct us lest we make hasty or foolish decisions. Send Your Spirit to give us courage lest through fear we recoil from living. Send Your Spirit to bring us your peace lest bitterness, false guilt, or regret take root in our hearts. The Lord has given. The Lord has taken away. Blessed be the name of the Lord. Amen.
