A ministry of Catholic Charities for Northern Colorado
What is Project Rachel?
Project Rachel is a confidential, post-abortion program overseen by Catholic Charities of Northern Colorado. Launched in 1991 as an archdiocesan program under the Archdiocese of Denver, administration for Project Rachel has since been moved to the main offices of Catholic Charities in Denver.
Since its beginning, hundreds of men and women have sought healing and reconciliation with God, the Church, themselves and their child.
Catholic Charities reaches out in this ministry on the premise that post-abortive parents have a right to grieve the loss of their child and work through their feelings of regret and guilt. Project Rachel reinforces the Catholic Church's teachings on forgiveness and helps post-abortive parents return to full communion with Christ and His Church.
What is post-abortion?
Many people, women and men alike, suffer trauma following involvement in an abortion. It can manifest itself in many ways, including guilt, anxiety, depression, anniversary reactions and broken relationships.
Project Rachel activities
Project Rachel provides individual counseling, either in person or by phone, and also coordinates a post-abortion support group, various healing Masses and retreats throughout the year. In addition, Project Rachel compassionately encourages participates to return to the sacraments, particularly reconciliation and the Eucharist.
Confidentiality is always respected. For help, or for more information, contact us at:
