Walking with Moms in Need, A Year of Service webinar 3-17-2020
Pregnant and parenting moms in need are in every community. The challenges can be immense for women in difficult pregnancies, especially women in poverty. As Pope Francis reminds us, Catholic parishes need to be “islands of mercy in the midst of a sea of indifference.”
The USCCB is asking bishops to invite their parishes to join a Year of Service to pregnant and parenting mothers in need from March 25, 2020 to March 25, 2021. Parishes will be asked to assess, expand, and communicate resources to pregnant moms and families in need in their communities. Close collaboration with Catholic Charities and other social service organizations is crucial for success.
In this webinar, you will learn more information about the Year of Service, which aims to get Catholics in the pews to work with local organizations that are helping pregnant and parenting women, and to reach out to mothers in need with support and authentic friendship. Join us to see how you can help parishes in your community connect with local resources to better support mothers in need.
