Post Abortion Healing Program

“Making abortion a thing of the past…by refusing to let it steal, kill, and destroy the future.” If you know of someone suffering the spiritual wound of abortion, please encourage them to seek healing. Project Rachel, Rachel’s Vineyard Retreat and Project Joseph are programs that offer safe and confidential sessions structured to compassionately support and strengthen both women and men struggling in the emotional aftermath of abortion.

A time of education, inspiration and restoration – The Diocese of Lafayette hosts sessions that are held in a safe and confidential space allowing for discussion, workbook exercises, grief processing, testimonial offerings and more. These healing programs  are for those wounded with the grief and spiritual pain of abortion. Post abortion healing ministry enables individuals to find understanding, forgiveness, healing and wholeness through the church’s ministry. (Confidential)
