For hope and healing after abortion

What services are offered by Project Rachel?

  • The Sacrament of Reconciliation: The central focus of Project Rachel is the Sacrament of Reconciliation (Confession), a privileged place of encounter with God's Mercy, the source of all healing. Through your contact with Project Rachel, you will be able to meet with a priest who will welcome and counsel you in a prayerful atmosphere of respect and sensitivity.
  • Referrals for Counseling: Referral for further counseling is also available to help you find continuing support in the healing process.
  • Weekend Retreats: Project Rachel sponsors a healing retreat for post-abortion women. The retreat breaks through the isolation and loneliness, enabling women to share their stories in safety and with respect. Women who have participated speak of a personal encounter with Christ and the life giving freedom of reconciling love.
  • Come to the Waters of Healing: This day is designed to help women hurting from past abortions to experience the personal love of Christ and find hope for healing. It will offer a loving and confidential environment to: hear stories of post abortion healing, share Scriptural stories of Christ’s healing love, and spend quiet time in prayer before God. Sacramental Reconciliation (Confession) will be available.
  • Living Well Post-Retreat Support Group – Women who have attended a Project Rachel retreat are also welcome to participate in the monthly Living Well follow-up support group in order to continue their emotional healing and spiritual development from post-abortion pain.
