St. Gianna Novena

St. Gianna Beretta Molla is a powerful patron for pregnant and parenting mothers. And as a physician, wife, and mother, she knew intimately what it was like to struggle with a challenging medical diagnosis during pregnancy.

Join us in praying a novena to St. Gianna from April 19-27. Each day features a new prayer intention and short reflection.
Monthly Prayer Intention*
May our merciful Lord calm the fears of all expectant mothers, fill them with His peace, and provide for every need.
*For the past year, our monthly pro-life prayer guide has been dedicated to supporting Walking with Moms in Need, with intentions for pregnant and parenting mothers. While this monthly resource has resumed with broader respect life intentions, we will still be featuring monthly intentions for mothers in need here in our newsletter.

If you would like to continue to receiving our monthly pro-life prayer guide and other pro-life content, sign up for Respect Life Prayer and Action!
ICYMI: Archdiocese of Atlanta Launches Local Effort
Archbishop Hartmayer shared this powerful video about how parishes in the Archdiocese of Atlanta plan to accompany women in need.

We love that the archdiocese is providing signs for every parish lawn, so that vulnerable moms will know they will be welcomed and helped!
