Entering Canaan
A post abortive journey to an inheritance of mercy…..

“… And in the desert people of faith are needed who, with their own lives, point out the way to the Promised Land and keep hope alive.” Pope Benedict XVI,Homily, Year of Faith , October 2012

Entering Canaan, is a post abortion ministry, developed by Theresa Bonopartis and The Sisters of Life in 1995. Since that time, Theresa, with Father Mariusz Koch, CFR, has continued to expand its outreach to men, siblings and couples who aborted due to an adverse diagnosis.

Entering Canaan is the post abortion ministry used by Lumina/Hope & Healing after abortion, where Theresa serves as director.
