Post-Abortion Healing

Please run in the parish bulletin each weekend during November, December and January. The majority of participants who reach out to Project Rachel tell us they read about this ministry in a bulletin announcement. They often say that they had to see the announcement many times before they could find the courage to call. Thank you for assisting the Project Rachel ministry. If your parish requires more brochures, please call or email us. We also have a website at: http://projectrachelnc.org/.

In Christ,

Director, Project Rachel (919-852-1021)
