General Announcements

Gabriel Project training set for Feb. 15 at Holy Rosary Parish in Indianapolis

Our Lady of the Most Holy Rosary Parish, 520 Stevens St. in Indianapolis, will host a Great Lakes Gabriel Project training for parishioners and anyone interested from 9:30 a.m.-4 p.m. on Feb 15.

The Gabriel Project ministry seeks to helps women in crisis pregnancies by partnering them with a volunteer who creates a personal relationship with the expectant mother, bringing her the love of Christ through action. The project works through a network of churches in the Indianapolis area.

Volunteers are also needed to provide support behind the scenes to collect and sort material donations for the mother and baby, and to fix meals for the family while and immediately after the mother is in the hospital.

The training will include sharing knowledge of where to find community resources for the mother and basics on communication skills—how to talk with the mother and keep in touch on material and spiritual levels. Role playing and quizzes will include actual scenarios that have occurred in the project.

To register or for information about the training or about Great Lakes Gabriel Project, contact Maria Barnes at barnesmaria41@yahoo.com, or by phone at 317-431-5688.
