Mayslake Ministries offers free spiritual outreach programs to our military men and women suffering from Post-Traumatic Stress. For many soldiers, life, including their spiritual life, has been forever changed by the experience of military service, deployment, and mobilization. The Veterans’ Retreat is a Christian-based program designed to help military men and women come to spiritual healing and reconciliation with God, their families and with one another. This program specifically addresses the issue of Post-Traumatic Spiritual Stress.
This is a two-night weekend retreat offered at no cost to veterans and their spouse or significant other (who are encouraged to attend) in a place of safety, respite and support. Retreat leader, Sr. Linda McClenahan, a veteran herself, served as a communications Sergeant in the III Corps area of Vietnam. She is now a Dominican Sister and Licensed Professional Counselor and Therapist whose ministry involves helping veterans deal with trauma. Sr. Linda is assisted by Augie Sisco, Major, USMC (Ret.), a Vietnam combat veteran. He is the assistant director for our Vet’s Ministry.
