Diocese Respect Life Office partners with Support After Abortion

The Catholic Church’s program for post-abortion healing nationwide is called Project Rachel, named after the Scriptural passage in Jeremiah 31:15-17 – “In Ramah is heard the sound of moaning, of bitter weeping!  Rachel mourns for her children, she refuses to be consoled because her children are no more. Thus says the Lord:  Cease your cries of mourning, wipe the tears from your eyes. The sorrow you have shown shall have its reward…There is hope for your future.”

Support After Abortion is an inter-faith organization with Catholic roots that began in Sarasota County. Project Rachel plans to partner with this international agency. Sharing some of its programs with women and men who contact Project Rachel will enhance their healing journey. Its networking opportunities will help people in need find Project Rachel, and its educational resources will assist in our team development. We look forward to continuing to collaborate with their excellent team!

To take the first step toward healing, reconciliation and peace, we ask you to contact the Diocesan Project Rachel Coordinator, Sylvia Jimenez, at 941-412-5860 (cell) or toll-free 888-456-4673, or project.rachel@dioceseofvenice.org. All contacts are confidential (se hable Español).
