Walking With Moms in Need: Resources for women from the Respect Life Archdiocesan Office. Walking with Moms in Need is a national initiative of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops to help parishes better support and accompany pregnant and parenting women. Joining in this initiative, parishes across the Archdiocese of Cincinnati are embarking on a Year of Service to assess, expand and communicate resources to moms in need in our communities. As Pope Francis reminds us, our parishes are called to be “islands of mercy in the midst of a sea of indifference.” Contact Chris Tonnis (513-741-4250).
