In the month of October, St Brigid is preparing to launch our parish’s support of the USCCB initiative, Walking with Moms in Need (WWMIN). Pregnant and parenting moms in need are in our parishes and our neighborhoods, and as Pope Francis reminds us, our parishes need to be islands of mercy in the midst of the sea of indifference.

Everyone in our parish community should know where to refer a pregnant woman in need, as well as how to support mothers who require help for their families.  Our parish has been helping these moms for a long time and we want you to know that we are joining a nationwide effort to support this USCCB initiative.

Volunteers are needed in several areas, including computer skills, staffing the help request line, meal deliveries, running errands, and being the parish’s primary point of contact for a given family. If you are interested in joining this ministry or desire more information, please contact Cathy Schneider at respectlife.saintbrigid@gmail.com.
