From: Sue Stubbs, Director of Victim Assistance Program’ Office of Child & Youth Protection
The Office of Child and Youth Protection, Victim Assistance Program, is moving forward with the scheduled 3-day retreat for adult female survivors of abuse from August 28-30 at Carmel Retreat Center in Hoschton, Georgia. The registration deadline is Friday, August 21. Safety protocols for COVID-19 will be followed.
Please review the details of the retreat on our web page at https://archatl.com/ministries-services/victim-assistance/healing-opportunities/the-way-for-women/ and pass the information on to anyone you may know who could benefit from this program. In the next few weeks, we will be sending you a supply of posters and brochures for use in your parish.
Many past participants of The Way for Women discovered the retreat from an announcement in their parish bulletin, thus I have included below for your consideration a parish bulletin/ministry newsletter announcement.
Thank you for your support of this vital opportunity for survivors of abuse. If you have any questions please contact me at email@example.com or (404) 920-7554.
