Day of Recollection for Post-Abortive Women


Monday, May 8, 2023 from 8:00am - 4:00pm

Day of Recollection for Post-Abortive Women

This Day of Recollection begins to build and restore the dignity of each woman by mirroring the love and compassion Jesus showed in embracing all women who were systematically judged to be unworthy of his love and care. Come for discussion, prayer, journaling, and quiet time. Come and be awakened to the love of Jesus!

Susan Carey: I am married and my husband Glenn and I have 6 children and 15 grandchildren between us. I am an Associate of the Sisters of Charity of St. Augustine since 2009. I became a spiritual director in 2017 receiving my certification in the ISI Program at John Carroll University. While attending John Carroll, I took part in a workshop for Project Rachel which ministers to women who have had an abortion. Since then, I have felt called to companion these women and others in their journey to know the loving compassion of Jesus.
