Healing Opportunity

An estimated one in three women have experienced the life-impacting effects of abortion. Women of all ages carry emotional burdens and heartache in silence and isolation without knowing whom to turn to for help.  If you are a woman
in need of abortion healing, or know someone who is, compassionate help is available.

St. Thomas is partnering with Michelle Gerken to offer a post-abortion study to members and friends of St. Thomas. Know that help is available, free, and confidential.*

There will be nine sessions on Tuesdays from March 5 through April 30, from 6:00 to 7:00 p.m. at St. Thomas. Cost is free, but the number of participants is limited.


Registration: For your privacy,  contact Michelle directly by Sunday, March 3.
She will have a private one-on-one discussion with you on the phone before
the sessions begin. ( or call/text Michelle at 630.768.1033)

If you, or someone you know, is interested in attending this study or if you just need someone to talk to regarding abortion, contact Michelle.
