The founder of Project Rachel says she is extremely pleased by the U.S. bishops' decision to create a full-time staff position to work with the post-abortion healing ministry.
"To oversee the ministry and keep on top of things that need to be done, you really need a full-time person," Vicki Thorn told CNA Nov. 18. "I'm just delighted that they're going to have one."
"This is an important ministry of the Church," she said, "and it is really key to the evangelization of our times."
Thorn founded Project Rachel in 1984 as a healing ministry for those who have suffered the devastating consequences of abortion. The program is present in the majority of Catholic dioceses in the United States.
