Are you now, or were you at one time an expectant mother in need? Do you know expectant mothers who are in need of help and support during a difficult pregnancy? Do you have ideas for how our parish might support women during this precious time? Holy Family Parish has joined the US Conference of Catholic Bishops in their initiative of Walking with Moms in Need. This year-long initiative will focus on identifying the needs and resources needed to help women facing difficult pregnancies, so that our parish may become, in the words of Pope Francis, “an island of mercy in a sea of indifference”.
Please contact Mary Schimmoller, Director of Volunteers to learn how you can help at, 626.403.6113 or email@example.com.
