Next Welcome Home Initiative Retreat for men and women set for Nov 11-13, 2019
The Welcome Home Initiative© is a Veterans Ministry facilitated north of Albany, NY on the campus of Christ the King Spiritual Life Center near Greenwich, NY, that offers healing for military veterans and the spouses of military veterans who have served their country in combat. These veterans may be suffering in varying degrees from post-traumatic stress or moral injury and are in need of soul repair.
The format of the program helps veterans and spouses understand the hidden impact of combat and provides a safe place for their emotional healing. This essential spiritual and emotional healing is a complement to healing received from psychiatric and social services.
Teaching, discussion, and prayer are the major components of the program. The connections and friendships formed during these retreats are outstanding and lasting. Participants find equal footing and experience camaraderie regardless of service.
All retreats sponsored by the Episcopal Diocese of Albany are held at Christ the King Spiritual Life Center.
