We at St Francis of Assisi Parish renew our pledge to support women, regardless of age, marital status, or immigration status, who are pregnant and in need, both during pregnancy, after birth, and in raising the child. Our services may include direct aid and include assistance by referral to organizations dedicated to helping mother and child. For resources, please see our webpage at: https://www.stfrancisa2.com/help-for-moms/
Take the Pledge: Cherish them Both
We encourage our St Francis parishioners to take their own pledge, a pledge that cherishes life:
As a parishioner of St. Francis of Assisi Parish, I acknowledge that all human life from conception to natural death is a sacred gift from God to be cherished and loved. I pledge to support at all stages the gift of life, especially the life of the unborn and where necessary to assist with my prayers, service and financial gifts, both mother and baby in times of need, crisis and unplanned pregnancies.
