Parishes who participate in the Walking with Moms in Need Year of Service will form a core team of staff and volunteers, complete a resource inventory to identify needs and resources in their local community, and create a plan to communicate with an accompany moms in need in their community! They will be supported by the AOD and Catholic Charities’ Walking with Moms in Need Team, as well as provided with extensive resources from the USCCB, the whole way!
Participating parishes will create a plan to address the following questions:
- What needs/gaps exist in our community’s support of mothers? How can the parishes fill this need?
- What ministers in our church will moms in need make contact with? Do they have access to the proper resources to make referrals?
- How will we continuously demonstrate that our parish is aware of and responsive to the needs of mothers?
- How will we continuously educate our people about Church teachings on life?
