Coming Home: A Healing Retreat for Veterans

A Weekend Retreat for Veterans

For many military men and women, life, including their spiritual life, has been forever changed by the experience of military service, deployment, and mobilization.

Coming Home is a FREE retreat designed to help veterans and current military members come to spiritual healing and reconciliation with God and with one another. This program is about spirituality, not religion, and it specifically addresses the issue of Post-Traumatic Spiritual Stress Disorder.

Significant others are also invited. Registration is limited to 15 participants.

Please register through Mayslake Ministries by visiting or emailing Sr. Linda McClenahan at [email protected].

Friday, October 7 to Sunday, October 9, 2022

The retreat begins at 6:00pm with pizza on Friday and concludes with the mid-day meal on Sunday. There is NO cost for this retreat. Offered in person.
