Project Rachel

Experience Hope and Healing After Abortion....

Suffering is the untold story of abortion. Grief after abortion is normal — it is the grief of a mother who has lost a child in a traumatic way; it is the grief of lost fatherhood. We are here to help you experience the hope and healing of Christ through Project Rachel.

What is Project Rachel?

Project Rachel, a compassionate and confidential ministry, extends God’s unconditional love and forgiveness to women and men who experience the tragedy of abortion.  By offering a safe place for those suffering to be reconciled with God and his Church, Project Rachel helps anyone who is suffering after having an abortion (or as the result of a love one's abortion) to experience God's mercy, forgiveness, and peace.
