Welcome to the Saint Charles Borromeo Spiritual Adoption home page.  At this site you will be able to access all the documents needed to establish or enhance a Spiritual Adoption ministry at your parish, school or other location.

Spiritual Adoption is a powerful intercessory prayer ministry based on our belief that God will spare a child from abortion when we intercede for that child and her or his family and the circumstances that are leading them to consider abortion.

Spiritual Adoption is a key component of St. Charles Borromeo’s comprehensive Respect Life ministry which includes:
  • Legislative advocacy including participation in the annual March for Life at the State capitol in Olympia.
  • Witnessing at local abortion clinics through 40 Days for Life and Tacoma Stands Up for Life.
  • Providing material, emotional, and spiritual support for families dealing with crisis pregnancies through our Gabriel Project ministry and our affiliation with Our Lady of Guadalupe Maternity Center in Lakewood.
  • Healing for people who have been involved in abortion through the Rachel Vineyard Retreats.
  • Prayer through our Spiritual Adoption ministry and other prayer vigils.

Click on the links in the left hand column to access unique materials which you can use without charge.  These include three elements: the Spiritual Adoption Manual which provides an overview of this ministry as well as “how to” instructions for starting a Spiritual Adoption ministry, color posters to display throughout the ministry period, and black and white copies of the posters which can be used as bulletin inserts.

Thank you for visiting our site and remember Prayer Works!
