What is The Gabriel Project?
The Gabriel Project is a parish-based ministry to support pregnant mothers and their unborn children. Using signs, pamphlets, car decals and a toll free helpline, we make it known that help is available to pregnant mothers experiencing difficulties.
When a call for help is received, the Helpline volunteer contacts the parish coordinator at the nearest participating church to where the caller lives. The coordinator contacts the caller and makes an initial assessment of her situation. A parish volunteer (“Angel”) is assigned the responsibility for ongoing contact with the mother throughout her pregnancy and somewhat beyond. An initial meeting is arranged to further assess her needs.
The parish community responds with love by providing spiritual, emotional, and material support to help meet those needs. Through prayer and action they assure the mother that she has their love and the love of Christ. If a mother has been abandoned by family or her child’s father, the parish community can lovingly help her overcome her sense of loss and loneliness.
If you are interested in helping, please contact the parish office.
This is a new program and it is under development.
