What is Walking with Moms in Need?

Walking with Moms in Need is a United States Conference of Catholic Bishops' supported initiative which invites Catholic parishes and communities to "walk in the shoes" of local pregnant and parenting women in need.

Everyone should know how to help moms in difficult circumstances.

While not trying to turn Catholic parishes into pregnancy centers, we can support local pregnancy centers where they exist, and we can also find and share other resources with pregnant and parenting women.

And where there are few local resources, we can create our own, based on the gifts of the parish community!

We hope you and your parish will join us in Walking with Moms in Need.

To learn about resources in our diocese, visit our Pregnancy Support page.
