Hi, I'm Kathy!

I’m the Coordinator of Project Rachel for the Diocese of Rockford. I have traveled my own post abortive journey and an very honored now be able to walk with those who seek healing and peace. Below you will find resources which can be distributed in your parish. Please let me know if I can better assist your parish in another way.

Abortion is a life changing event that affects many individuals emotionally, spiritually and physically. Some experience the need to find healing right after the abortion or for some, it may take many years to come to this place. The truth is that abortion is a traumatic loss.

Society does not provide a public way to grieve this loss. With no way to process this loss, the wound caused by abortion often remains unhealed and becomes a secret sorrow carried alone and without support. Many suffer from guilt, sadness, isolation, nightmares, addictions, eating disorders, anxiety or other negative emotions and behaviors. 

It is important for us as a Church to let men and women know that they are not alone. We want to reach out to with the mercy and love of Christ so they can be at peace with themselves and God. We want to let people know that there is hope. There is help.
