Our parishes need to be “islands of mercy in a sea of indifference.”

Pope Francis

What is 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. It’s an initiative of the Church through which we as a community can team together to support mothers in need. Jesus gives us the Church as a gift. We, the Body of the Church, are meant to be a gift to others. Everyone in our parish community should know where to refer a pregnant or parenting woman in need.
