The Mission of Project Rachel and Project Joseph is to help post-abortive women and men understand what took place with the abortion experience, and its impact on their lives and relationships. Struggles with sadness, anger, shame and regret can be overwhelming. These emotions can be crippling and prevent people from living life to the fullest.  Our goal is to accompany and assist people on this healing journey, free of judgement and condemnation, leading them on a path towards forgiveness, freedom and peace.

Archbishop concludes his reflection on the Eucharist with John's account of the washing of feet.  Jesus teaches that people of the Eucharist are called to be "foot washers", servant leaders willing to do what ever it takes to make the love of God present in the world.  The Eucharist is not just the source and summit of our faith, but  the source and summit of our mission.

Archbishop Naumann interviews Gavriella Geller, Executive Director of the Kansas City Jewish Community Relations Bureau / American Jewish Committee.   They discuss how Catholics and people of good will can be more aware of and confront anti-semitism.

 

"I met Gavriella last Fall when I had the privilege of touring the Union Station exhibit: Auschwitz: Not Long Ago, Not Far Away, and then participating in a conversation with other KC area clergy about the problem of antisemitism.  Sadly, in January we were all reminded of the reality of how Jew’s don’t feel safe to go to worship, when a gunman took hostages at the Congregation Beth Israel in Colleyville Texas.  So, I invited Gavriella to come help us better understand the growing problem of antisemitism and what we as Catholics can do."  Deacon Bill Scholl
