Project Rachel Team to offer The Language of Compassion

The “Language of Compassion,” intended to help people provide support to those impacted by abortion, will be offered by the Diocese of Portland’s Project Rachel team in the hall of St. Joseph Church in Ellsworth on Monday, November 13, 6 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.

When you encounter someone who has experienced or been impacted by an abortion, you may want to help but may find yourself struggling to find the right words. The "Language of Compassion" is a presentation that will help you understand the effects of abortion and will teach you the messages that can assist you in becoming an effective agent of healing and hope. All are encouraged to attend this free event. No registration is necessary.

Through Project Rachel, the Diocese of Portland seeks to offer hope, understanding, and healing to women and men whose lives have been affected by abortion. The ministry develops tools for parish leaders and hosts Rachel’s Vineyard retreat weekends for those who are suffering in their post-abortive lives.
