Great Lakes Gabriel Project

What is it and how does it work?

     Great Lakes Gabriel Project is a Christian-based network of church volunteers working in Indiana standing together in their commitment to offering assistance to women and families facing difficult or unplanned pregnancies. Services provided by the Great Lakes Gabriel Project are free and confidential, and they do not discriminate in providing services on the basis of race, creed, color, national origin, age, marital status, or the religious affiliation of our clients.

     Every Catholic Parish is asked to provide women volunteers who will advertise their commitment to life by placing a Gabriel “Sign of Life” in front of their church. The sign, with its toll-free hotlines, assures every mother that the local church community cares for her and her family and that they are prepared to offer her immediate and practical help. Women in the Parish are best able to work with those women on a personal level as they are all part of the Parish Community.

     Gabriel women can, on occasion, work with pregnant care centers whose main objective is to offer all forms of assistance, spiritual, physical and psychological. Councils can not be reticent in introducing this project to their Parishes and have the ability of helping many pregnant women who are in desperate need of help. There are members of every council who can bravely speak-up and be a part of the creation of Gabriel Projects.

     I have utilized the assistance of Gabriel Project women and have witnessed the loving care administered to those women who are confused and frightened by their pregnancy. I have sought help from them and have been a part of successes that the Gabriel women have given.
