This Parish Action Guide is provided to assist parishes in joining the nationwide effort, Walking with Moms in Need. Inspired by St. John Paul II’s call to assess our efforts in building a culture of life, the intention of Walking with Moms in Need is to increase the Church’s outreach to pregnant and parenting women in need. (A brief summary of this Parish Action Guide is also available. The summary outlines the steps of each phase in a simple, one-page format.)

This Action Guide is designed primarily for use by the parish leader; however, specific sections may be specifically addressed to the pastor. The Action Guide includes specific materials and resources to help parishes participate in Walking with Moms, including sample timelines, announcements, prayers, activities, homily notes, and more. While each parish will participate in its own unique way, this Action Guide provides a basic framework and structure that can be adapted to each local Church’s needs.
