Project Rachel is a healing ministry for individuals who have been affected by abortion, helping them to grieve, receive forgiveness, and find peace. For more information about Project Rachel or to speak to a trained Project Rachel professional, please contact:
Rachel’s Vineyard Weekends for healing after abortion follow a retreat model developed by Teresa Burke, who started this ministry for post-abortive women in 1986. Rachel’s Vineyard Retreats, available in Dioceses across the U.S., offer a supportive, confidential and non-judgmental environment where women and men can express, release and reconcile painful post-abortion emotions to begin the process of restoration, renewal and healing.
