USCCB Launches "Walking with Moms in Need"

Pregnant Belly
The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) is asking Catholic parishes to take part in a year-long service project to assist women who are facing pregnancies in challenging circumstances. The initiative, "Walking with Mom's in Need: A Year of Service", was announced by Archbishop Joseph F. Naumann, Chairman of USCCB Committee on Pro-Life Activities, on January 22, the National Day of Prayer for the Legal Protection of Unborn Children. 

Running from March 25, 2020 through March 25, 2021, the program invites parishes to "assess, communicate and expand resources to expectant mothers within their own communities." For this Year of Service, the USCCB Committee on Pro-Life Activities is developing educational, pastoral, and action-oriented resources for parish use, including:
  • Tools for documenting an inventory of local resources for pregnant mothers in need.
  • Ideas for improving parish responses.
  • Prayers for building a culture of life and a civilization of love.
  • Reflections on the teachings of Evangelium vitaeEvangelii gaudium, and Laudato si'.

More information about Walking with Moms in Need can be found here. The original statement from Archbishop Naumann can be found on the USCCB website.
