Walking with Moms in Need

Category: Community Outreach
Description: The National Conference of Catholic Bishops created this initiative, and Archbishop Hartmayer would like each parish to be able to assist pregnant and parenting moms who may be in need within our area. The idea is to develop information and support programs for those women.

Holy Spirit’s Respect Life Ministry has included sidewalk warriors who save families and their babies from abortion and prayer warriors who support them all. This ministry has been very successful in convincing women to make the right decision. When a woman is willing, the Catholic-sponsored Pregnancy Aid Clinic provides a free ultrasound, prenatal resources and parenting and budgeting classes. The women deserve so much more.

The WWMIN ministry supports mothers in crisis who may need OB care, baby items (and planning a baby shower), budgeting help, housing research, jobs, friendship, legal help and more. We need to be on the parenting journey with them as they choose life and may have no family support and encouragement in doing so.
