We are working to highlight local resources in coming weeks in our Parish. Please check back for updates.
Walking with Moms in Need is a nationwide initiative to increase support for pregnant and parenting mothers facing difficulties. As part of Walking with Moms in Need, parishes—with the support of their bishop and pastor—are invited to take part in a yearlong process to evaluate local resources and support for mothers in need. Each participating parish is asked to complete a simple inventory of the resources currently available in their local area, assess the results and identify gaps, and plan and implement a parish response based on their findings.
Our parish Walking With Moms in Need team has been busy collecting and vetting area resources for moms in crisis. This Fall, we began to share and highlight area resources. Our goal is to be sure that all parishioners are informed and know where to refer a mom in crisis. The collection, compiling, and vetting of resources will continue over the next few months. We are working with both private and public resources available to help moms in crisis. Once vetted and approved, local area resources will be added to those in the “Moms in Need Crisis Resource Guide” provided by the Diocese of Duluth. Resource guides and prayer cards are located at both church entrances.
Our Blessed Sacrament team has recognized New Beginnings pregnancy + family support located in Grand Rapids, MN as an important resource for moms in need of an ultra sound. They offer limited obstetrical ultrasound to determine the viability of pregnancy. New Beginnings is looking for a Registered Diagnostic Medical Sonographer (RDMS) with an OB/GYN credential to provide annual training and supervision to their staff providing limited obstetric ultrasounds.
