Project Rachel

It’s normal to grieve a pregnancy loss, including the loss of a child by abortion. It can form a hole in one’s heart, a hole so deep that sometimes it seems nothing can fill the emptiness.

Please know that you are not alone.

Project Rachel is a beautiful way to start healing.

A Message from Stephen Ministry

“You Got a Problem with That?”

At various times in our lives, we experience challenging problems. We need someone who genuinely cares and actively listens.   At St. Anastasia, we have a group of dedicated, highly-trained, caring ministers, both men and women, who volunteer to be there when we need it most. Call on us. Here are examples of problems and issues people experience:

Recent death of a family member, friend or cherished pet

Job loss or substantial income reduction

Divorce or separation

Emotional distress, loneliness or helplessness

A crisis in your own faith

Call Kim Houseman, (248) 689-8380. She can begin the process of getting you help from a Christ-centered, caring member of the parish, all on a confidential basis. Stephen Ministers Care!
