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.

Walking with Moms in Need is an opportunity for Catholic parishes and communities to "walk in the shoes" of local pregnant and parenting women in need, accompanying them in friendship and helping to connect moms with local resources.

Walking with Moms in Need provides parishes with a framework to inventory local resources, identify gaps in services, and implement a parish response based on their findings.


Parishes can support local pregnancy centers where they exist, and where there are few local resources, they can create their own based on the gifts of the parish community.

We hope you and your parish will join us in Walking with Moms in Need


Regina shares the story of how her local parish supported her when she was a single mother of six young children. Today, she helps serve mothers in the same parish through Walking with Moms in Need.
