The journey to Canaan continues all of our lives until we are united with Jesus in heaven.
Once each year, a “Mercy Retreat,” usually held during the Lenten season takes place. It is a time to refresh and renew in the Lord, and open to all those who have participated in the ministry over the years. This is an opportunity to spend some time with Our Merciful Savior, and deepen our faith through conferences, adoration, and the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass.
While abortion is addressed in this retreat, 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 by Theresa 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

“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
