A healing ministry for post-abortive women
Project Rachel is a program that reaches out to the post-abortive woman and her family as a means of receiving the healing grace of God through sacramental reconciliation, counseling and prayer. It is a ministry of the Respect Life Office.
In the Diocese of Little Rock, Project Rachel support groups begin meeting in February and September for 11 weeks in Little Rock, Hot Springs and northwest Arkansas. These groups are for women who are suffering from the physical, emotional, psychological and spiritual effects of a past abortion. Participants may also attend an annual retreat with other Project Rachel women. To register for a support group or get more information, e-mail Anne Dierks or call her at (501) 664-0340, ext. 357. ALL e-mails and calls are kept strictly confidential.
