Mrs. Vicki Thorn, founder of Project Rachel, will conduct a Project Rachel workshop on Tuesday, March 14 in Lincoln, Nebraska. Mrs. Thorn will cover the following topics: Wounds of Generation X, Biochemistry of Pregnancy and Sex, Teen Decision-making and Abortion, Dealing with Newly Aborted Women, Impact of Abortion on Fathers, Siblings and Others, and The Process of Healing. Anyone interested in these topics is welcome to attend.
In particular, if you know of non-Catholic clergy or counselors who would be interested in this topic, please invite them.
[Annie's note: this kind of workshop is typically meant more for counselors, clergy and post-abortive ministry workers than for the post-abortive women themselves]
The workshop will take place in Dawson Hall at Blessed John XXIII Diocesan Center (3700 Sheridan Blvd, 402-488-2040) in Lincoln from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm.
For those who may not be able to attend the full workshop, Vicki will lead a breakfast discussion from 7:30 - 9:00 am in the same location. She will present information on teen brain research and the role of stress in the abortion decision followed by an open forum on post-abortion aftermath.
If you (or someone you know) are/is interested in attending this workshop or the breakfast discussion, please e-mail Greg Schleppenbach (below) to obtain a brief registration form to return to him by March 10. Cost for the all-day workshop is $20.00 which includes lunch. Cost of the breakfast discussion only is $5.00.
