Day of Healing offered at St. Norbert Abbey

The third annual “A Day of Healing” retreat for those affected by sexual abuse will be held April 6 from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Norbertine Center for Spirituality, located on the grounds of St. Norbert Abbey, 1016 N. Broadway, De Pere.

Facilitated by the Journey of Hope team, this retreat will provide a time to gather, pray and talk about the healing process related to the effects of sexual abuse. All are invited, including survivors of sexual abuse, friends of survivors and other caring persons. During the day, participants will be given options to interact in small groups and for personal quiet time.

“I am humbled and honored to have the opportunity to share this ‘Day of Healing’ with survivors of sexual abuse and others that support us,” said Barb Bayer, a survivor and Journey of Hope member. “We all walk a different path on our journeys as we continue to heal from the emotional, physical and spiritual brokenness from sexual abuse.”

A $10 non-refundable registration fee is due March 22. This includes a continental breakfast, lunch and materials. Overnight accommodations for April 5 are available at the Norbertine Center for Spirituality at an additional cost.
