During the Opening Mass of the National Prayer Vigil for Life on January 28, Archbishop Naumann urged the support and implementation of Walking with Moms in Need in dioceses and parishes around the country to better serve pregnant and parenting mothers in need:
"Similarly, I urge each of you, if you have not already, to become involved in your parish and diocese with Walking With Moms in Need that was officially launched last March 25. Walking With Moms in Need is an initiative for dioceses and parishes to become knowledgeable about all of the resources that are available to women facing a difficult or untimely pregnancy. We are asking our dioceses and parishes to promote and expand existing resources.
Mothers and children that we cannot protect by law, we can surround and rescue with love. We want no mother, no child left behind because there was no one to encourage and assist them."
