What is Project Rachel?

Submitted by Administrador

Project Rachel operates as a diocesan network of healing composed of specially-trained caregivers which may include priests, deacons, sisters, lay staff and volunteers, mental health professionals, spiritual directors, mentors, chaplains and others, such as 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.
Founded in 1984 by Victoria Thorn in Milwaukee, today Project Rachel programs can be found in about 150 Catholic dioceses in the United States, as well as in dioceses in other countries.
