notes and coos
December 2018
"Keep the joy of loving God in your heart and share this joy with all you meet especially your family. Be holy – let us pray."

Mother Teresa of Calcutta  
Once Upon a Silent Night
It takes time and preparation to celebrate the miracle of Christmas; decking the halls and hanging the stocking; adorning the tree and lighting the house; baking cookies and hosting parties; buying presents and making bows, and the list goes on.
Deeply inside, and most importantly, we ready our hearts to welcome Jesus in our homes. Christmas is the season for giving, for receiving, for sharing, and forgiving; for memories and plans; for family and fun!
May the blessings from the star above fill your home with peace, comfort, and joy.

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year from Mater Filius Dallas!
We brewed, we poured, we sipped...
What a lively afternoon! More than 100 ladies in attendance to support the mothers and babies at Mater Filius Dallas.
They enjoyed mimosas, delighted with the fashion show, took home amazing prizes, and played "Binkies or Pinkies" for our dear Lukas.
Thank you to all our guests, donors, and sponsors for another successful Sips for Life. We were able to raise $10,000 for the completion of the multipurpose room. We could not have done it without you!
Spring Blooms
We are expecting four new babies in May; the month in which the earth springs into bloom and we honor Mary Mother of God.
Oh my! It will be a happy full house!

A Dream Come True
After months of construction, our new multipurpose room is finished! Only a few touches and brushes, to finally put it to good use.
This additional space will make a huge difference in the lives of the mothers and babies residing at Mater Filius Dallas. We will start planning occupational workshops, early childhood development sessions, and crafts activities to build community.
