“Walking with Moms in Need: A Year of Service” – January 2020 – April 2021
Even though we were unable to come together to celebrate the launch of Walking with Moms in Need: A Year of Service, we can still come together in building a foundation of prayer for this effort. This initiative comes to us from the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops and invites parishes to support pregnant and parenting moms in need in our parishes and our neighborhoods. As Pope Francis reminds us, our parishes need to be “islands of mercy in the midst of a sea of indifference”. Everyone in the parish community should know where to refer a pregnant woman in need. To learn about resources in our diocese, visit our Pregnancy Support page.
If you have some extra time at home, check out the online resources and begin thinking about creative ways you can prepare for Walking with Moms in Need: A Year of Service, when it is pastorally and practically appropriate for everyone’s safety. To learn more visit: https://www.walkingwithmoms.com/
