support pregnant and Parenting moms in need by walking With them on their journey through motherhood.
Walking with Moms
Walking with Moms in Need is a national initiative of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops to help parishes better support and accompany pregnant and parenting women. Everyone in each parish community should know where to refer a pregnant or parenting woman in need. Walking with Moms in Need hopes to help parishes do just that. Through St. Jane’s Parish mentorship and resources, we can surround pregnant and parenting moms of young children with love and support. We do not want any mother or child left behind because there is no one to encourage and assist them. We are here to help in any way that is possible.
As Pope Francis reminds us, our parishes are called to be “islands of mercy in the midst of a sea of indifference.”
What does it really mean to walk with moms in need?
A Prayer For Expectant Mothers

Guide us as we strive to make our parish communities places of welcome and assistance for mothers in need. Help us become instruments of God’s love and compassion.
Mary, Mother of the Church, graciously help us build a culture of life and a civilization of love, together with all people of good will, to the praise and glory of God, the Creator and lover of life.
