Give a Gift for Life this Christmas
Supporting the Gabriel Project and Project Rachel of our Diocese.
Gabriel Project offers emotional, spiritual, material, and financial support to expecting mothers. Total prenatal costs are typically about $3,000. One mother wrote, “I was very distressed and scared not knowing who would help me with my pregnancy…I could not go to anyone…and I was without the support of my baby’s father. He wanted me to abort but I decided to have my son. I must thank Gabriel Project for all the moral, spiritual, and medical support…for this reason, I named my son Gabriel!”
Project Rachel provides counseling and healing retreats to those who suffer the effects of abortion. One after-abortion care retreatant wrote: “I would have NEVER had the courage to show my face at this [abortion healing] retreat…God works in mysterious ways and by His grace, I found the courage to step forward in my faith. I am so grateful that this ministry exists and was there for me…without judgement when I was ready to tackle the deep-rooted pain in my heart. I am forever grateful!”
