Welcome to the Society of Centurions
Since 1996, under the leadership of Dr. Philip Ney, a family and
child psychiatrist from Canada, the Society of Centurions has
existed to provide a path to healing and a mutually encouraging
fellowship of those who have used their professional skills to

These individuals have been profoundly wounded, and need deep
healing. They need a helping hand to walk the difficult path of
re-humanizing the children they killed by re-humanizing

healing through a powerful rehabilitation program that gathers
and guides such former abortion providers.
Priests for Life is playing a key role in announcing and
fostering this healing. We invite those who are in the abortion
industry to come out. We invite those who have come out of the
abortion industry to contact us and to discuss their options for
healing and wholeness.
We also invite those who know anyone who may benefit from the
Centurions to likewise contact us.
And let’s pray for all these men and women, that the peace of
Christ may be theirs.
