TRAUMA RECOVERY GROUP for adult survivors of childhood trauma.
THE WAY FOR WOMEN: Healing Retreats for Female Survivors of Abuse.
THE WAY FOR MEN: A Healing Retreat for Male Survivors of Abuse.
Cry to Heaven: Christ calls all of us to reach out to the
victims of abuse in their time of need. Through various parishes' Eucharistic Adoration programs and other prayer efforts across the
Archdiocese of Atlanta, the church's faithful are praying for victims of
abuse. This is our way of letting those who have been abused know that
they are surrounded by the prayers of their brothers and sisters in
Christ...and that He is there among us too. This is another way Christ
promised to be with us always. "Where two or more are gathered in my
name, there I am among them."
Spiritual Services: The Victim Assistance Program organized a Prayer Service of Consolation in the late summer of 2007 (See Georgia Bulletin Article) and a
Prayer Service of Atonement Fall of 2010 at which Archbishop Wilton D.
Gregory presided. Archbishop Gregory's 2007 prayer service address is available for download as a PDF.
Spiritual Guidance: Abuse affects the whole of us - body, mind,
heart, and soul. Should you feel the need to speak with a priest about
the affect the abuse you experienced has had on your spiritual life,
please call 404-920-7550 and Sue Stubbs will help you schedule an
appointment with one of the priests that Archbishop Gregory appointed to
this role or you can view the list by clicking here.
