Both before and after an abortion, feelings of fear, anxiety, guilt, panic, and pressure are common; not only for the mother of the unborn child, but also the father, grandparents, close friends, and even medical personal.
Project Rachel is a means of receiving the healing Grace of God and forgiveness for abortion. It allows the individual to move toward reconciliation- with herself or himself, with the unborn child, the family, the Church, and with God.
We offer our sisters and brothers in Christ hope through reconciliation. May these efforts of compassion be blessed with God's healing love.
To initiate your participation in Project Rachel please contact the Respect Life Ministry. To maintain confidentiality, please mention that the call is for Project Rachel.

"The Church is aware of the many factors which may have influenced your decision, and she does not doubt that in many cases it was a painful and even shattering decision. The wound in your heart may not yet have healed. Certainly what happened was and remains terribly wrong. But do not give in to discouragement and do not lose hope. Try rather to understand what happened and face it honestly. If you have not already done so, give yourselves over with humility and trust to repentance. The Father of mercies is ready to give you his forgiveness and his peace in the Sacrament of Reconciliation. To the same Father and his mercy you can with sure hope entrust your child. With the friendly and expert help and advice of other people, and as a result of your own painful experience, you can be among the most eloquent defenders of everyone's right to life. Through your commitment to life, whether by accepting the birth of other children or by welcoming and caring for those most in need of someone to be close to them, you will become promoters of a new way of looking at human life."
