Archbishop Joseph Naumann of Kansas City in Kansas announced Monday at the US Conference of Catholic Bishops' fall meeting an initiative meant to help parishes assist pregnant women in need at the local level.
Everyone needs to know what pregnancy resources there are available in the community, Naumann said Nov. 11, adding that he hopes Catholics can move from "partisan divide into pastoral unity" on the topic of abortion and the Church's response.
Naumann, chairman of the USCCB Committee on Pro-Life Activities, announced that from March 25, 2020 to March 25, 2021 the bishops will support an initiative called "Walking With Moms in Need: A Year of Service."
The program, Naumann said, will include resources for parish use, tools for creating an inventory of resources available to help women in the community, prayers for building a culture of life, reflections on encyclicals related to life, homily help, pulpit announcements, communications and outreach suggestions, and more.
