WALKING WITH MOMS IN NEED
Walking with Moms in Need is a process through which Catholic parishes and communities "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.
St. Matthew's, Christ the King & St. Thomas Parishes have joined efforts to work together to help Moms in need. For more information please call the Parish Office or watch the video below.
