Walking With Moms in Need

Resources to pregnant moms and families in need.

Walking with Mom's in NeedIn late 2019, the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, in recognition of the 25th anniversary year of Evangelium vitae, invited parishes to assess, expand, and communicate resources to pregnant moms and families in need. This ongoing program is entitled “Walking with Moms in Need: A Year of Service." Unfortunately, the pandemic sidelined archdiocesan efforts to invite parish participation.

Due to the importance of our efforts to promote the life and dignity of the human person, the Archdiocese of Milwaukee would like to offer you a very streamlined version of this program designed to be simple and accessible during these challenging times. We see these efforts as a launching point for future activities and enhanced partnerships with agencies that help woman-facing crisis in their pregnancy.

Our aim is to create a network of “Dignity Partnerships” that highlight the work that Catholics engage in to support women through pregnancy. As we know, the social teachings of our Catholic Church, rooted in our Gospel call, asks us to uphold the “Life and Dignity of the Human Person” and this project aims to enhance the “dignity” component of this teaching.

The full version of “Walking With Mom’s in Need” is available online on the USCCB website and offers a robust Action Guide. This guide provides a wealth of resources for parishes to aid them in an expanded program, as well as in this streamlined program. It is available in both English and Spanish.
