Your life is not the same.
You’re pregnant and may be feeling alone, frightened, and overwhelmed by new challenges.
Right now you need a friend you can depend on and trust. One who will walk beside you along your new journey.
You are concerned about your life and future and so too are we.
We are members of the churches in your city and neighborhood.
We are people who care about you and want to help you.
We offer you immediate, practical assistance with your pregnancy.
More than anything else we will embrace you as family and friend.
By employing our individual talents, collaborating with various ministries in the parish or diocese and utilizing community resources, we stand ready to provide you with the kinds of assistance that you need in caring for yourself and your child.
Beside friendship and emotional support, we can provide pastoral care and counseling as well as the more tangible help you are likely to need. We look forward to meeting with you and, together, assessing your specific needs. The Gabriel Project, which is sponsored by the Catholic Church of San Francisco, heartily welcomes you regardless of your faith background.
|In the Gospel of Luke, the Angel Gabriel told Mary the good news that a child would be born and that she was to be the Mother of our Savior. When she asked, “How can this be?” the angel told her not to be afraid for “nothing is impossible with God.” The Gabriel Project announces the same comforting message to you:|
Fear not, for God is with you!
Nothing is impossible with God.
|You are stronger than your fear, and more powerful than even the most challenging circumstances that you may find yourself in. You will find the courage to make your way through this one. There is hope, life, and joy on the other side of this journey and though you are strong enough to get there, you don’t have to go alone.|
“THE MEMBERS OF THIS CHURCH COMMUNITY SEE IN THE CONCEPTION OF EACH CHILD A FRESH EXPRESSION OF GOD’S UNFAILING LOVE. WE OFFER IMMEDIATE AND PRACTICAL HELP TO ANY PREGNANT MOTHER EXPERIENCING DIFFICULTIES.”
