Weekend Retreat

Rachel Ministries has begun holding Anglican weekend retreats for healing after abortion. Roman Catholic, interdenominational, and Spanish-language retreats are also scheduled. Come and experience the mercy, forgiveness and healing love of God in the company of others who understand what you're going through, and will help you find hope and healing. Open to women, men, couples - anyone hurting because of abortion. All denominations welcome. Call 817-923-4757 for more information and to register. All calls are kept confidential. Spanish-language retreats are also available.

Post-retreat support groups

The Journey is an 6-week study group for continued healing after abortion. Other support groups, including Rachel Companions (peer support), meet for between 8 and 13 weeks.

Additional opportunities

Volunteers and cash donations are needed.

Volunteer training opportunities are available. See racheltx.org.

Representatives of Rachel Ministries would like the opportunity to speak to your parish community. We can give a 3-minute prepared, compassionate talk about our ministry at all your Sunday services, in both English and Spanish. We believe it is important that those who are hurting after abortion hear that the church wants to help them heal, and does not condemn them.

Please call Betsy Kopor at 817-996-2856 for more information on any of the above.

LIFE CHAIN is a peaceful and prayerful public witness of pro-life individuals standing for 90 minutes praying for our nation and for an end to abortion.  It is a visual statement of solidarity by the Christian community that abortion kills children and that the Church supports the sanctity of human life from the moment of conception until natural death.
