Walking With Moms in Need (WWMIN) is a service ministry in which Catholic parishes walk with local pregnant and parenting women in need. It is a nationwide effort inspired by St. John Paul II’s call to assess our efforts in building a culture of life (learn more here).
Our parish’s Walking with Moms in Need (WWMIN) is holding our first annual “Bless a Mom” Mother’s Day Fundraiser. It begins this weekend, May 6, and runs through May 21.
Since our ministry started in 2020, we have hosted 6 baby showers, adopted 7 families at Christmas, and walked closely with 12 mothers to guide and support them as best as possible through difficult life situations. Most of our moms are referred from SVdP, PAC, or sidewalk saves from the abortion clinic.
Your donations go directly to these families through:
- Providing rent assistance, covering utilities, or paying for emergency shelter
- Giving Uber or Lyft gift cards to moms without a car
- Delivering groceries and homemade meals
- Buying baby supplies including diapers, wipes, formula
- Offsetting the cost of hosting baby showers and ministry expenses
Our ministry has a crib set up in the vestibule of the Church loaded with baby tags containing gift ideas and dollar amounts. Like the IOH giving tree, parishioners can take a tag and contribute online using a QR code. Those wishing to donate by cash or check or by donating a box of diapers or wipes please bring on the weekend of May 20-21, the last weekend of the fundraiser.
