Project Rachel Day Retreats

Are you searching for forgiveness and peace?

Whether it’s been one year or 40 years, you need time to grieve your loss and reflect on your feelings of sorrow and regret. Project Rachel is here to help you do that in a supportive and confidential environment. We are here to listen to you and help you through your pain.

Project Rachel Day Retreats offer:

  • Complete confidentiality
  • A chance to share your grief in a safe atmosphere of acceptance and trust
  • Referrals to priests or professional counselors
  • Forgiveness, healing, and peace

As a program of Catholic Charities Pregnancy and Adoption Services, Project Rachel welcomes people of all faiths, and is not for women only.


Many women experience trauma after an abortion. Some of these manifestations include:

  • Guilt
  • Shame
  • Anxiety and depression
  • Despair
  • Feelings of helplessness
  • Suicidal thoughts
  • Low self-esteem
  • Self-destructive behavior
  • Drug and alcohol abuse
  • Nightmares/sleep anxieties
  • Anniversary reactions
  • Anger at others involved
  • Anger at God and Church
  • Sexual problems
  • Flashbacks
  • Broken relationships
  • Intense interest in babies
  • No joy in another’s pregnancy

These are common reactions for those who have had abortions, but you may think that no one else who has had an abortion feels this way.

You are not alone. Come, and discover a path to healing.
