News from The Women’s Center
March 6th marks the beginning of Lent. During Lent with sadness we contemplate the agony and death of Jesus, but we also think joyfully of His resurrection. Similarly, many women in unplanned pregnancies are troubled and sad. They come to The Women’s Center and receive help, counseling and prayers. They are filled with joy after they give birth and cradle their baby in their arms. Take part in the Women’s Centers flower sale this Mother’s Day weekend: May 11 & 12, 2019. We will be selling bouquets of flowers after Masses at Chicago and suburban parishes. Check to see if your parish or church participates. Contact us for details or to sign up to help by calling 773-794-1313 or email John at firstname.lastname@example.org.
