Reflection: Called to Serve Moms in Need

This short reflection connects our personal call as Christians to live out the corporal and spiritual works of mercy with care for moms and respect for life.


The reflection can be used as the basis for a homily or talk, shared in parish bulletins, printed in your diocesan paper, and included in newsletters. It could also be used as the basis for small group discussions at parish pro-life meetings, in a high school religion class, or simply among friends.

You can read and share the reflection online, or download and print as a one-page resource.

"... Everyone in a given parish community should know where to refer a pregnant woman in need. This effort hopes to help parishes do just that. How do you answer this call? Meet with your pastor or parish respect life coordinator. Use the Parish Resource Booklet that was provided by the diocesan Office of Family Life to all pastors, along with the abundance of resources on the Walking with Moms in Need website, as tools and inspiration for building a parish response...."
