Project Gabriel offers awareness sessions for all interested clergy and laypersons.
Parishes usually publicize their commitment to Gabriel by erecting a BABY-DUE sign, provided by the pro-life committee or other parish group such as the Knights of Columbus. On Respect Life Sunday or other appropriate time, the pastor dedicates the sign and volunteers called “Gabriel Angels” are recruited from the parish.
Two-day trainings are held throughout the diocese three times a year, in January-February, May-June, and September-October. Angels are commissioned at the end of the second training day and are then eligible to be paired with a mother. All Angels are required to take the “safe environment” training offered for anyone in the parish who ministers to the young or vulnerable.
