Post Abortion Care

Project Rachel Ministry

Project Rachel is the church's ministry that operates as a network of professional clergy, licensed counselors and volunteers all trained to provide one-on-one spiritual and psychological support for those who are suffering from the trauma of abortion.

 

The Diocese of Sacramento Project Rachel Ministry offers special Rachel's Vineyard Retreats several times a year in both English and Spanish. Rachel's Vineyard is the world's largest ministry for healing after abortion.   


Rachel's Vineyard Retreat Weekends

Rachel’s Vineyard weekend retreats are a beautiful opportunity for any person who has struggled with the emotional or spiritual pain of an abortion. The retreat is a very specific process designed to help an individual experience the mercy and compassion of God. It is also an opportunity to surface and release repressed feelings of anger, shame, guilt, and grief. There are many exercises to help someone grieve the loss of his or her unborn child and to receive and accept 

God’s forgiveness. The retreat concludes with a Memorial Resurrection Service. The weekend will help individuals find their souls and transform the pain of the past into love and hope.  

Upcoming 2021-2022 Retreat Dates
