Walking With Moms In Need is a new program developed by the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB).
Your Transfiguration For Life Ministry is working directly with the Archdiocese of Atlanta to implement this new program. This new program will implement educational, pastoral, and action-oriented resources for parish use, such as:
- Tools for documenting an inventory of local resources for pregnant mothers in need.
- Ideas for improving parish responses.
- Prayers for building a culture of life and a civilization of love.
- Reflections on the teachings of Evangelium vitae, Evangelii gaudium, and Laudato si’.
Why Walking with Moms in Need?
“The challenges can be immense for women in difficult or unplanned pregnancies. 75% of women who choose abortion are low income,” said Archbishop Naumann, Chairman of the USCCB Committee on Pro-Life Activities.
“We have well over 17,000 parishes in the United States. Each parish is best able to identify the local pregnancy help resources that are currently available and to identify potential gaps that need to be addressed. The parish community is uniquely positioned to encourage a collaboration of resources at the local level and to increase awareness of help available to mothers and families in need,” Archbishop Naumann explained.Right now, Transfiguration RFL ministry is in the beginning, organizational stage of building this program for our parish. Mike Northway and Peggy Desiderio are co leading this effort. Watch future newsletters and our website for news of this exciting new program.
