Supreme Knight to deliver Project Rachel anniversary address

.- In commemoration of the 25th anniversary of the founding of Project Rachel, a post-abortion healing ministry, Supreme Knight Carl Anderson will speak at a celebratory dinner to be held in Milwaukee on September 18.  Anderson’s speech will touch on the vital significance of the post-abortion ministry as well as the encouraging pro-life trend in recent polls.

The speech comes in wake of a Gallup Poll conducted last spring which found that 51 percent of Americans now identify themselves as "pro-life," while only 42 percent identify as "pro-choice." This slight pro-life majority is the first time since 1995 when Gallup first began conducting such polls.

Despite such encouraging pro-life trends, the ministry of Project Rachel is essential, as is the support of the Knights of Columbus over the last several years, said a press release from the K of C.  In his speech this evening, Anderson plans on noting that: “In an often shrill debate over abortion, the work of Project Rachel is vital. It brings healing to those survivors of abortion that are so often ignored: the parents of the aborted child."

The speech and dinner will be held after a 6 p.m. Mass celebrated by Bishop William Callahan, auxiliary of the Diocese of Milwaukee, at St. Margaret Mary Church.
