Supported Local Pro-Life Groups 2012

Project Rachel is the Catholic Church’s healing ministry for those who have been involved in abortion. Father Dan has been very involved in this ministry throughout his priesthood. Cards announcing the formation of 2013 Support Groups for Women who had abortions will be available soon on the Pro-Life table in the church and on this site. The cards can be shared when praying in front of the Silver Spring Planned Parenthood. Please contact Julia Shevala by phone at 301-982-2008 or 888-456-HOPE or by email at projectrachel@adw.org. For additional general information, please see this ministry’s website: http://hopeafterabortion.com. Volunteers are needed to help (1) post and remove Project Rachel signs with tear off slips in the school bathrooms on Thursdays for Bingo participants and (2) post these signs on Fridays for Bingo/Adoration participants and remove them before daily mass on Monday mornings. To help, please contact prolife@standrewapostle.org or Lourdes Sejismundo at 240-505-2018.
