"... Many times, pregnant and parenting moms find themselves in desperate need of help. According to Catholic social teaching, every individual is our brother or sister in Christ. As Christians, we are called to welcome these women to assist in whatever way we can.
Every Christian is faced with these questions: How do I respect the life and dignity of every person from conception to natural death? How should I get involved in efforts to find solutions and positive contributions toward bringing hope and love at another’s time of need? Can I speak the truth and become a voice for the voiceless? How willing am I to live these God-given truths?...
The diocese has chosen Sept. 8, the Feast of the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin, as the birthday of the Walking with Mom’s Program in Hawaii."
