The AIM ministry welcomes adults with physical disabilities and those with mobility issues due to aging. Over the years, participants have included individuals with obstacles posed by their vision, hearing, speech, mobility or other physical disabilities or injuries.
Anyone is welcome to join one of AIM’s online retreats by simply clicking on the Zoom link provided on this site when the next retreat rolls around. If you need help connecting, AIM is more than happy to assist you. Just reach out to AIM at AIMretreatministry@gmail.com.
AIM also provides an annual weekend retreat in South Florida, where participants and volunteers who assist them spend from Friday evening through Sunday afternoon in an immersive, loving and impactful experience. AIM did not hold a weekend retreat in 2020-2022 due to the pandemic, but held its 2023 retreat June 9-11. The next weekend retreat is set for Aug. 2-4, 2024.
When an event is held, there is an application form to fill out. The application will provide general information to AIM about your abilities, your physical needs, and medications you will be taking while at the retreat.
Retreat organizers and the volunteer nurse will review each application to ensure that AIM and its volunteers are able to provide the assistance you require and will advise you. There is limited space for each weekend retreat, based on the retreat center’s accommodations. Depending on the number of applicants, AIM may have to create a wait list.
If you know of someone with a physical disability or who experiencing mobility issues due to aging, who you think might appreciate the chance to participate in a spiritual retreat, please let them know about the AIM ministry. It may be something that will make a big difference in their lives.
