Project Rachel Retreats

Project Rachel Retreats are open to any woman who feels the need for healing after having an abortion. Here Gloria Gutierrez, a volunteer with the ministry, describes what women can expect at the retreats.

“We love you.”

San Francisco Archbishop Cordileone answers the question, What do you say to a woman who has had an abortion?

The loss of a pregnancy, including by abortion, can leave a permanent mark on a woman’s life.

You are not alone. The Archdiocese of San Francisco sponsors Project Rachel which helps women and men heal the pain of abortion and to find the path to peace and reconciliation.  If you are in need of healing because of abortion, please call 415-614-5567 or email [email protected]  

We will keep all interactions confidential.

Additional Resources


There Is Hope After Abortion: It’s normal to grieve a pregnancy loss, including the loss of a child by abortion. It can form a hole in one’s heart, a hole so deep that sometimes it seems nothing can fill the emptiness.


Rachel’s Vineyard: Retreats that create a safe place to renew, rebuild and redeem hearts broken by abortion. Weekend retreats offer you a supportive, confidential and non-judgmental environment where women and men can express, release and reconcile painful post-abortive emotions to begin the process of restoration, renewal and healing.


National Silent No More Awareness Campaign: This website can help if you or someone you know is hurting after an abortion. You are not alone!
