What We Do
Participating congregations “advertise” their commitment to life by placing a Gabriel “Sign of Life” in front of their church. The sign, with its toll-free hotlines, assures every mother that the local church community cares for her and her family and that they are prepared to offer her immediate and practical help.
How We Began
Great Lakes Gabriel Project began as a ministry in 1998 at St. Bartholomew Church in Columbus, Indiana – 50 miles south of Indianapolis. By the end of the first year, the word had spread through the community and we had helped 18 pregnant mothers.
We were invited to participate in local hospital committees formed to improve services for pregnant women. The Archdiocese of Indianapolis gave us the approval to carry out our project and provide leadership to other churches throughout the archdiocese.
We soon became a network of churches, otherwise known as the Body of Christ, providing peer counseling about abortion and immediate and practical help to women and families experiencing difficult or unplanned pregnancies.

We have expanded our campaign to 24 hours! For those who cannot get to the vigil site during normal vigil hours, or for anyone who wants to take additional hours, we are offering a pray at home option from 7 p.m. to 7 a.m. Monday through Saturday and until noon on Sunday. THIS IS NOT TO REPLACE HOURS PRAYING AT THE VIGIL SITE! This is a great option for seniors, those who are sick, those who don't drive and those who are concerned about being exposed to others.
Fall 2007 brought a national movement called 40 Days for Life. Great Lakes Gabriel Project (GLGP) sponsored the program and led the community in prayer 12 hours a day and all-night Saturday in front of the largest abortion center in Indiana, Planned Parenthood at 8590 Georgetown Road, just south of 86th St. in Indianapolis.
We had already been working by phone with local sidewalk counselors at all four abortion centers in Indianapolis, but providing prayer support 12 hours a day at Planned Parenthood, deepened and enriched our relationship with the sidewalk counselors.
Starting in 2009 GLGP sponsored 40 Days for Life – Indy in the fall and during lent in the spring.
If you would like to play a leadership role in this peaceful, prayerful campaign, please contact Timothy O’Donnell, Director of 40 Days for Life - Indy
