Pregnant? Need Help?

Walking with Moms In Need - Volunteers

Why We're Here

Pregnant and parenting moms-in-need are in our parishes and our neighborhoods. As Pope Francis reminds us, our parishes need to be “Islands of mercy in the midst of the sea of indifference.” Using these resources, everyone in our parish community can help a pregnant or parenting woman get the support she needs.  We hope to move closer to the day when every mother in need knows where to turn for help.

Who We Are

Walking with Moms in Need is a joint ministry of St Julie and St Peter parishes, located in North Ridgeville. Volunteers from these parishes have joined together to aid pregnant and parenting women, without regard to race, color, national origin, age, marital status, or religious affiliations.

What We Do / Volunteer Opportunities

Volunteers walk with moms throughout the motherhood journey offering them authentic Christian friendship and ongoing support. 

We start by sending two trained volunteers to meet with the mom, starting the journey of companionship. The goal is to assess needs and determine what resources can be used to help lighten the burden this woman is carrying. We hope to assist through pregnancy and beyond, depending on her wish. This component of the ministry may not be your calling, but Walking With Moms in Need still needs you! 

Help is needed in areas such as fund raising, marketing, advertising, and communication. Other areas include a necessities team, who will help secure items that community resources are unable to provide. Additionally, cleaning and storage of donations, setting up furniture in a home, and preparing a meal are other examples where help is needed.

 

Most important, your prayers are needed for the men and women who are choosing Life!

Our next meeting is scheduled for Wednesday, March 27th at 7 pm in the Holy Family room at St Julie's, where we will be transforming Lenten rice bowls into Walking with Moms in Need bowls. We would love to have help with our first fundraiser. We as volunteers are discovering that the desire to serve those in need is making a positive impact on our own lives.

On January 26, 2024, a luncheon meeting was hosted at St. Julie Billiart for Lorain County organization members who share in similar missions. Over 50 individuals, representing 26 different agencies, attended the information session!

These individuals are interested to learn about the mission of Walking With Moms In Need, and look forward to partnering in assistance as future needs arise.
