Pro Life Ministry
The Gabriel Project is the manifestation of God’s love to women experiencing a crisis pregnancy. This love is a witness of the infinite and healing love of God. The Gabriel Project is the work of the Holy Spirit; and through pastoral care it evangelizes and educates.
The Gabriel Project is a parish-based crisis pregnancy intervention within the Catholic Church. Through the parish acting as the Good Samaritan, future Moms receive the love, care, and spiritual, material, and emotional support they need throughout their pregnancy. The parish community responds to each Mom with unconditional love. A “Sign of Life” placed in front of the church states that help is available to all pregnant women.
A trained mentor, the parish Gabriel Angel, is responsible for ongoing contact with each Mom, throughout her pregnancy and beyond. Once a Mom has met with her Angel, her crisis is over although her problems are not. It will take some time to help Mom work out her difficulties. Consequently, the Gabriel Project works collaboratively with other ministries in the Parish and within the Diocese.
The Gabriel Project is not an emergency service. All emergencies must go directly to the local emergency room or to the police.
The Gabriel Project is grounded in prayer and seeks the guidance of the Holy Spirit.
Pro Life Ministry
As a sub-committee of the Social Justice Committee, the Pro Life Committee coordinates all parish-based activities regarding the dignity of the human person from conception to natural death. The activities range from praying in front of abortion facilities to lobbying for adequate legislation to protect the unborn.
