The Pro - Life Committee is sponsoring a Gift of Life Giving Tree to Support Women and their Unborn Babies


It costs $3,775 to provide complete medical care for one expectant mother.

We would like to support two. 


Project Gabriel is a charitable outreach mission in the Diocese of Arlington that provides peer support, financial assisance, medical care, and counseling to expecant mothers who may not have the means to support their unborn babies without help. Each donation provides real, tangible help like prenatal vitamins, childbirth education, doctor appointments/labwork/sonograms, and medical attention at the baby's delivery. Our Gift of Life tree will collect donations to provide for two women. 

Visit the Project Gabriel Website


Anything left over will help anyone affected by the grief of an abortion.

Any donations beyond what is necessary to support two monthers will be donated to Project Rachel - the charitable outreach mission in the Diocese of Arlington helping anyone affected by grief, trauma, or sorrow of an abortion with retreats, counseling, and spiritual support.
