My Online Video Retreat starts any time, is entirely online, happens at your own pace, and is set in the context of my Present in the Pain Community – a space that offers support for grieving mothers outside of social media.

The retreat offers hope and help, lessons from Scripture and Saints, and practical tools for healing from the grief and trauma associated with the loss of a child. Women can work through it on their own if they prefer, or can join one of our quarterly group retreats to join other bereaved mothers for support, friendship, and accountability to see the retreat through to completion.

Our Winter Online Group Retreat is currently underway, and our Spring Online Group Retreat begins in April. But you don’t have to wait! You can join the retreat whenever you’re ready for immediate access to all of the materials, and if you choose, you can still join in the group retreat to share your thoughts and find help from others.


I would love to come and speak to your group or to work with you to host a Present in the Pain retreat in your parish or local retreat center.

I am also available to consult with priests and parishes about ways they can better support families who have lost a child.
