Project Rachel is a post-abortion healing ministry, a nonjudgmental and confidential Catholic outreach to women and men of all religions who have experienced the trauma of abortion. Anyone who has emotional, mental, and spiritual pain can find truth and healing. Project Rachel is named after the Old Testament figure Rachel, who weeps inconsolably for her children “who are no more” until God came to her, offering hope for her future (Jeremiah 31:15-17). God is all loving, forgiving, and merciful, and in His name the Church reaches out to you with compassion and hope.

–*New—Starting in March 2021, I am available to lead The Rachel Rosary to pray for healing of victims of post-abortion syndrome and those who have been involved in abortions in any way. The Rachel Rosary is comprised of the 5 Sorrowful Mysteries and the Glorious Mystery of the Resurrection with a scripture passage for each mystery and an intercessory prayer for each Our Father and Hail Mary. Perfect for small groups, ministries, or the parish. It is beautiful, heartbreaking, and takes about 45 minutes to pray.
