The Walking with Moms in Need efforts throughout southeast Michigan is a joint venture partnership between the Archdiocese of Detroit (AOD) and Catholic Charities of southeast Michigan. As the charitable arm for the corporal works of mercy throughout the AOD, Catholic Charities of southeast Michigan is honored and excited to help develop this project for many years to come.
Our Walking with Moms in Need ministry is currently helping a couple of moms whose needs are great. Our team is committing to the long-term accompaniment both spiritually and emotionally that these women need… and we are sharing an opportunity for others to help by donating clothing and diapers.
Above all, please lift these moms in prayer, as well as all moms who are abused, displaced, or facing hopeless circumstances.
Coffee Connect with Moms
Walking with Moms in Need invites all mothers to our Coffee Connect with Moms gatherings! This social group is designed to bring mothers together for fellowship and to build community.
Some days we meet in the nursery and adjacent Room 5 in the St. Irenaeus Faith Formation building. During nice summer days, we meet at the park.
Feel free to bring your children or a friend! All are welcome. RSVP is not required, but encouraged, so we have an idea of how many people to expect.
Please contact Beatrice Janka with any questions, or to find out when we meet next and get our email updates: email@example.com.
Our Family of Parishes Walking with Moms in Need Team
Would you recognize a woman with an unplanned pregnancy or one who is struggling to parent alone if you sat next to her in church? If you could recognize her need, would you want to reach out in love to help her? This is your chance! Our Rochester Area Catholic Family of Parishes has launched our local chapter of Walking with Moms In Need! Our core team is gearing up to provide accompaniment and assistance to pregnant women and single mothers in need. We hope to provide: new mother mentorship, babysitting, personalized layettes, transportation, help accessing services, breast-feeding and parenting tips, loving support, and community.
What we are able to offer depends on who joins our team. If you have a special interest, knowledge or skill and want to contribute to our effort—or if you simply have a big heart and desire to help, we want to hear from you! Got a little love to give? Contact: Lisa Juriga at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Hey Moms — do you need a little support?
Are you a mom that could use some accompaniment? Parenting needs go beyond physical elements like diapers and wipes. Sometimes we need emotional support, prayer support, or ideas for resources when we are stretched in our ability to problem-solve specific issues our children are facing…. Let us help try to meet your needs or refer you to a resource that can. Call our Family of Parishes Walking with Moms in Need line: 248-651-9595, ext. 460. Refer us to a friend who might need parenting support—spread the word, we’re here to walk with you!
