From: Sue Stubbs, Director of Victim Assistance Program, Office of Child & Youth Protection
The Office of Child and Youth Protection, Victim Assistance Program, has scheduled a three-day retreat for adult female survivors of abuse September 10-12 at Carmel Retreat Center in Hoschton, Georgia. COVID-19 safety protocols will be followed. Registration deadline is Tuesday, August 31.
Please review the details of the retreat on our webpage 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, I will also be mailing you a few posters and a supply of brochures for use in your parish/ministry.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org or 404-920-7554.
