POST-ABORTION HEALING AND RECONCILIATION
"Rachel mourns her children; she refuses to be consoled because her children are no more. Thus says the Lord: 'Cease your cries of mourning. Wipe the tears from your eyes. The sorrow you have shown shall have its reward."
Jeremiah 31: 15-17
It's common but often unspoken – to grieve the loss of a child by abortion. It may seem that nothing can fill the emptiness of one's heart. Be assured that there is forgiveness, hope and healing. Many women and men have participated in diocesan Project Rachel Ministries and been transformed by God's merciful love.
WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT
If you or someone you know is suffering after abortion, confidential, non-judgmental help is available from Project Rachel Ministry. Reach out by phone or email to speak with a trained Project Rachel team member. This team member can help you navigate your healing journey through conversation, local resources, and sacramental healing if desired.
Project Rachel is a ministry of the Catholic Church in the U.S. to those who have been involved in abortion. It is a diocesan-based network of specially trained priests, religious, counselors, and laypersons who provide a team response of care for those suffering in the aftermath of abortion. In addition to referring for Sacramental Reconciliation, the ministry provides an integrated network of services, including pastoral counseling, support groups, retreats and referrals to licensed mental health professionals.
