cropped cropped logoProject Rachel - Hope After Abortion

Project Rachel is the Catholic Church's healing ministry to those who have been involved in abortion.

Project Rachel is a healing network of specially-trained caregivers that may include priests, deacons, sisters, lay staff, volunteers, mental health professionals, spiritual directors, mentors, chaplains, and medical personnel.

These individuals, often working as a team, provide direct care to women, men, and adolescents who have been touched by an abortion loss, enabling them to grieve, receive forgiveness, and find peace.

In addition to individualized counseling, some programs include support groups and retreats. Project Rachel programs can be found in about 150 Catholic dioceses in the United States, as well as in dioceses in other countries.
