Providing Spiritual Support for Pregnant Women
Ave Maria Press
Notre Dame, Indiana

The Goal:

CatholicMom.com and Ave Maria Press are partnering on this Lenten project to provide spiritual support to expectant mothers. We hope to send 50 copies of A Catholic Mother's Companion to Pregnancy—a week-by-week spiritual companion for pregnant women—to 20 pregnancy centers around the United States. Your donations will be used solely to help us achieve this goal.

 For each $10 donation one book will be sent to a pregnancy center listed below.

The Need:

The driving force of this campaign is the knowledge that there are a number of people who can benefit from the guidance and companionship of the book, but who can’t afford it or wouldn't otherwise know it is available. There are many ways to show support for women in unplanned pregnancies; encouraging these young and often scared women to walk with Mary is one way.

"I used to volunteer in a pregnancy center. It broke my heart. After I had my own kids, women who seek help from pregnancy centers became an even more intimate part of my prayers. To share my book with them is the least I can do." 

Sarah A. Reinhard 
Author of A Catholic Mother's Companion to Pregnancy


The Way You Can Help:

Your donation will cover the cost of the book and the shipping. The pregnancy centers will benefit by receiving copies of the book, which serves as a spiritual resource to women they serve who make the courageous decision to carry their pregnancies to term. Simply make donations in $10 increments and Ave Maria Press will handle the rest.
