Walking With Moms in Need

Islands of Mercy

Walking with Moms in Need is a program that strives to make sure that the everyone connected with the Catholic Church and its resources knows how to support pregnant women in need. As Pope Francis says, Catholic parishes ought to be “islands of mercy in a sea of indifference.”
