We, the members of Our Lady Star of the Sea, see in the birth of each baby a fresh expression of God’s unfailing love. For the love of God and each and every one of his children, we offer immediate and practical help to any woman faced with a crisis pregnancy.

The Gabriel Project is a parish-based ministry to women facing crisis pregnancies.
Volunteers with Star of the Sea and other participating parishes offer support to a pregnant woman by offering the love, care, and spiritual, material, and emotional support she needs throughout her pregnancy. A “Sign of Life” is placed in front of the church stating that help is available to pregnant women. (Here at Star, our sign is placed outside the Parish Office along 6th St.) Then, a trained volunteer mentor, called a Gabriel Angel, is matched with a pregnant woman and is responsible for ongoing contact throughout her pregnancy and beyond.
In late 2009, Archbishop Brunett encouraged Fr. Ed White, St. Stephen the Martyr parish in Renton, to take the lead in laying the necessary groundwork to begin this ministry locally. After much work, the Gabriel Project ministry began in February 2011. We are happy to be able to offer this ministry at Our Lady Star of the Sea!
