Project Rachel Retreats

Project Rachel is the Catholic Church’s ministry to those who have suffered the trauma of an abortion experience.  Project Rachel provides free professional and confidential counseling, reconciliation, and spiritual direction with love and compassion for those left wounded by an abortion.

PrayerIn our retreats, women ponder the great gift of God’s mercy and love poured out for all in the Person of Jesus, His Son, focusing on the Heart of Jesus.  Jesus in turn showed His love by giving His own Mother to all to love and care for our needs: “This is your Mother.” - John 19:27

Come and spend some restful time in company of Jesus and Mary.  The retreats will be held in a homelike, private setting for a time of prayerful recollection.  Mass and the Sacrament of Penance will be available. 

The retreats are directed by the Project Rachel Support Team:

  • Religious Sisters of Mercy of Alma, Michigan and Sisters from the Society Devoted to the Sacred Heart are on the staff at the Archdiocese of St. Louis and help out on Project Rachel retreats. 
  • Marisol Pfaff is a post-abortive woman who leads a spiritual support group and coordinates the women's retreats for the Archdiocesan Respect Life Apostolate's Project Rachel Program.   
  • Fr. Tom Pastorius and Fr. John Paul Hopping are gracious diocesan priests who humbly assist on the day and weekend retreats.
