A Year of Service- Walking with Moms in Need

Posted on September 09, 2020 in: ProLife

A Year of Service- Walking with Moms in Need

Heeding the call of Saint John Paul II to build a culture of life, our diocese, in union with an initiative from the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, is partaking in a year of service titled “Walking with Moms in Need”. The purpose of this year of service is to increase the Church’s outreach to pregnant and parenting women in need. With that in mind, Bishop Cote is encouraging us as a diocese to join the nationwide effort entitled: “Walking with Moms in Need: A Year of Service.”

Women sometimes face many challenges during and after pregnancy and reach out for help wherever they can get it. While there are many resources available, only some of them lend themselves to support for life. Why not put those in the hands of women that need help?

By working together, we can identify services that are available at a local parish level and make those resources available to women in need. Additionally, our diocesan team can help local parishes in providing services outside their immediate vicinity. As the background information for this program says, “We hope to move closer to the day when every pregnant mother in need knows where to turn for help, and abortion is simply unthinkable.”

Resource material has been sent to every parish in our diocese. If you want to help or are seeking help, contact your parish and ask for your local “Walking with Moms in Need” representative. If you are having difficulty contacting your local representative, feel free to contact Mark Desrosiers at topgum@charter.net
