This week I’m happy to share more information with you about Walking with Moms… About 30 parishioners have volunteered to be involved in various ways in the Walking with Moms ministry- what a fantastic response to an important neighborhood outreach by the parish… The group has developed a survey, to be shared with school, parish and neighborhood moms, to gain an understanding of the needs of local women who are pregnant or have newborn or young babies. Walking with Moms wants to be a way our parish can offer loving support to any pregnant or parenting mom within our parish boundaries,whether in the parish, school, or neighborhood, to make sure no mom feels alone or afraid.
The ministry’s plan is to offer practical support through an emergency baby pantry of supplies and a website to connect moms with local resources and skilled parish volunteers. Walking with Moms also wants to offer friendship and spiritual help, perhaps through a monthly moms fellowship or prayer group. The group is excited and interested to see who the Holy Spirit sends our way. Please remember them in your prayer as they continue to develop this exciting outreach to our parish, school and neighborhood communities.
