The Archdiocese of Santa Fe is
holding out the hand of healing to women suffering from
post-abortion trauma. This is a Bible-based program offered
at the Catholic Center - Kiva Room. Each session, starting at
7 PM, lasts at least two hours.
The Women's Restoration Group
at St. Bernadette's Church has successfully conducted this
program for five years at that Northeast Albuquerque parish.
The new series for 1999 is an effort to reach even more
participants. The Archdiocese is pleased to continue this
ministry at its main facility.
Among those served are women
who have founds the pain resurface years after an abortion.
Others have begun the process of healing through the
Sacrament of Reconciliation and seek further healing.
Participants share their feelings in an informal,
non-judgmental atmosphere as they work through the various
stages of guilt, anger, shame, grief, depression and denial.
They pray together and use a Bible study workbook
specifically designed for women who have been through the
abortion experience. Individual help also is available. for
