Archbishop asks help For ‘Gabriel Project’

SAN FRANCISCO – In a Jan. 22 letter to all pastors of the Archdiocese of San Francisco, Archbishop George Niederauer encouraged support for the “Gabriel Project,” a parish-based program that helps pregnant women.

Following a Gabriel Project Conference at St. Mary’s Cathedral last fall, the Archdiocese included The Gabriel Project among the ministries of the Office of Public Policy and Social Concerns.

Archbishop Niederauer noted that the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, in their “Pastoral Plan for Pro-Life Activities,” stated that one of the objectives of a parish prolife activity should be to “develop or adopt a parish-based ministry to pregnant women and their children.” The Gabriel Project answers this call and embodies the practical support that the bishops promise pregnant women, said Archbishop Niederauer.
