Bonopartis, Theresa




Theresa is the co-developer with The Sisters of Life of “Entering Canaan – a Sacramental Journey to an Inheritance of Mercy”, a post abortion ministry published by the United states Conference of Catholic Bishops, which consists of day retreats, weekends, monthly gatherings and special retreats.

In addition to the women’s ministry she also developed, with the Franciscan Friars of the Renewal, specialized days for men, siblings of aborted babies and those who aborted as a result of an adverse diagnosis.

Having experienced abortion herself, her journey of healing has inspired many works across the country and the world, including “An Afternoon of Prayerful Remembrance and Intercession”, a prayer service she developed with the Family Life Office of New York, which has been televised by EWTN and conducted by many diocese across the country.

Theresa’s articles on healing can be found in many publications including, Aleteia, Catholic Online, Catholic Exchange, National Catholic Register,The Post Abortion review, and others. She can be seen in segments of EWTN’s Sunday Night Prime speaking of healing as well as many venues including radio .

Theresa is available for public speaking and to conduct workshops on various issues related to healing.

In 2001, Reclaiming Our Children, or ROC, was formed and incorporated as the lay apostolate of the “Entering Canaan” ministry. It is currently in the process of receiving it 501C3 status.

Theresa’s first book, “A Journey to Healing Through Divine Mercy”, a book of meditations on post abortion healing was recently published by Marian press. She prays that it assists many on their journey to God and healing.

Her great devotion to Divine Mercy, which was instrumental in her own healing journey, and Our Lady of Czestochowa, patroness of all her work, is the inspiration for all she does.
