General Announcements

Gabriel Project hosting two free dinners in Indianapolis with ‘Abby Johnson of Indiana’

The Great Lakes Gabriel Project will host two free fundraiser dinners in Indianapolis in February featuring Scott Cunningham, secretary of the Knights of Columbus State Council, and also the “Abby Johnson of Indiana”— a local former Planned Parenthood nurse to be revealed for the first time.

The first dinner will be held at the Southside Knights of Columbus Club, 511 E. Thompson Road in Indianapolis, on Feb. 6. The second dinner will be held at the Northside Knights of Columbus Club, 2100 E. 71st St. in Indianapolis, on Feb. 11.

Both events begin with seating at 6 p.m., and dinner and the program from 7-9 p.m.

The meals have been graciously underwritten and will be served free of charge, although reservations are required because seating is limited.

Rachel’s Vineyard Retreat for post-abortion healing set for March 21-23

After an abortion, many suffer and feel alone. Some who experienced abortion, whether recently or years ago, never tell a soul. Some may have been denied a choice or needed support.

Regardless of the circumstances, healing is possible through the Rachel’s Vineyard Retreat set for March 21-23 at an undisclosed location.

Rachel’s Vineyard Retreats are designed for women and men who seek healing from a past abortion.

One retreat participant shared: “I will always feel sorrow for my abortion, and I will always regret it. That will never go away and that’s OK. The difference now is that I don’t feel the shame and despair of my abortion. My shame has been dissolved, and it is with humility that I can fully acknowledge that I’ve been forgiven. The inner peace I now have and my strong love for God are two of the greatest gifts he has ever given me.”

The deadline to register for the retreat is March 10.

For more information on the retreat and post-abortion healing, contact the confidential helpline at 317-452-0054.
