“A Time to Heal” is a weekend specifically designed for the victims of sexual abuse by clergy. As part of the journey to healing, this retreat offers assistance for those that have
experienced the pain and ripple effect of the scandal: the victims, their families, other believers, and those working in institutional church settings.
The weekend is facilitated by mental or call 517-669-8321
health professionals and centered on Jesus Christ. We are here to assist with the complexity of the healing process.
A Time to Heal helps those who have endured physical, emotional, and/or spiritual abuse by clergy find healing.
