Walking with Moms in Need in Northeast Ohio

What is Walking With Moms in Need NEO?

Walking with Moms in Need is a process through which Catholic parishes and communities “walk in the shoes” of local pregnant and parenting women in need.

Everyone should know how to help moms in difficult circumstances.

While not trying to turn Catholic parishes into pregnancy centers, we can support local pregnancy centers where they exist, and we can also find and share other resources with pregnant and parenting women.

And where there are few local resources, we can create our own, based on the gifts of the parish community!

The Diocese of Youngstown’s Office of Pro-Life, Marriage and Family Life provides support for Catholic parishes to get started. We hope you and your parish will join us in Walking with Moms in Need. 

Who Are Moms in Need?

Pregnant and parenting moms in need are in our parishes and our neighborhoods. As Pope Francis reminds us, our parishes need to be “islands of mercy in the midst of a sea of indifference.” Everyone in the parish community should know where to refer a pregnant woman in need.

Moms in Need could include:

Family Members

Relatives

Friends

Acquaintances

Neighbors

Co-workers

Students

Any woman who is pregnant or parenting in difficult circumstances.

She may feel frightened, alone and unsure where to turn.

You could be the support that she needs to make a life-affirming decision and avoid a lifetime of regret.

You could help save a life!

Get Started in Your Parish

Bishop David Bonnar has invited parishes and pastors in the Diocese of Youngstown to join this nationwide effort entitled, Walking with Moms in Need. Find tools for parish leaders at the national website for Walking with Moms in Need. For more information or support to start this initiative in your parish, please contact:

How Can I Help a Mom in Need?

Prayer for Pregnant Mothers

O Blessed Mother, you received the good news of the incarnation of Christ, your Son, with faith and trust. Grant your protection to all pregnant mothers facing difficulties.

Guide us as we strive to make our parish communities places of welcome and assistance for mothers in need. Help us become instruments of God’s love and compassion.

Mary, Mother of the Church, graciously help us build a culture of life and a civilization of love, together with all people of good will, to the praise and glory of God, the Creator and lover of life. Amen.
