Sts. Zelie & Louis Martin Ministry

Our beloved patron saints that we ask for intercession to nurture mothers and fathers as they bring new life into the world.

"And soon we'll have the intimate happiness of the family and it's this beauty that brings us closer to him."
- Louis Martin

Mission & Values

Resources
  • Rachel's Vineyard is a safe place to renew, rebuild and redeem hearts broken by abortion. Weekend retreats offer you a supportive, confidential and non-judgmental environment where women and men can express, release and reconcile painful post-abortive emotions to begin the process of restoration, renewal and healing.
