Project Rachel (Post-Abortion Healing)

Project Rachel, the Catholic Church’s ministry to those who have been involved in abortion, is a diocesan-based network of specially trained priests, religious, counselors, and laypersons who provide a team response of care for those suffering in the aftermath of abortion. In addition to referring for Sacramental Reconciliation, the ministry provides an integrated network of services, including pastoral counseling, support groups, retreats and referrals to licensed mental health professionals.

If you or someone you know is suffering after abortion, confidential non-judgmental help is available.

Jean Maun, a faithful parishioner here at the Basilica of St. Mary Star of the Sea for more than thirty-five years, and well trained in the emotional and spiritual needs of those suffering from the aftermath of abortion, is available to anyone in need of support. Jean can be reached at 305 292 4670 or through the Rectory Office at 305 294 1098.

Project Rachel’s national toll-free number is: 888-456-HOPE(4673) or visit
