Walking with Moms in Need, a year of service
About Walking with Moms in Need

Archbishop Naumann, as USSB Chairman of the Pro-Life Committee, announced this initiative in November 2019. Pregnant and parenting moms in need are in our parishes and our neighborhoods. As Pope Francis reminds us, our parishes need to be “islands of mercy in the midst of a sea of indifference.” Everyone in the parish community should know where to refer a pregnant woman in need.

The 25th anniversary year of Evangelium vitae gives us a wonderful opportunity to assess, expand, and communicate resources to pregnant moms and families in need. We are inviting parishes, through the support of their bishop and pastor, to join a nationwide effort from March 25, 2020 to March 25, 2020 to March 25, 2021 entitled: “walking with Moms in Need: A Year of Service.”
