Catholic Charities – Adoption

Adoption is a wonderful way to build a family. As one adoptive parent said, “Adoption has been a blessed event in our lives. We can’t imagine loving anyone as much as our child. Our son has been the joy of our lives and has allowed us the opportunity of having a family. We are extremely grateful to his mother for bringing him into our world.”

Healing after Abortion

Yesterday, January 22nd, marked the 44th anniversary of the tragic Roe v. Wade decision which has led to the deaths of over 58 million pre-born babies. For those who have had abortion, God’s mercy and healing is an amazing gift for you and your loved ones.

Healing after Abortion Resources:

The U.S. bishops invite the faithful to participate in 9 Days for Life, January 21-29, an annual period of prayer and action cherishing the gift of life. We are encouraged to “pray, gather, and share” during this novena. Visit the USCCB website for more information.

Catholic Charities

Fall is a time of adjustments, new schedules, homework, making new friends and sometimes new schools. Adjustment is not easy and stressful reactions can occur. When tempers flare and feelings are hurt we can feel very alone and confused. You are not alone. Catholic Charities can assist families and couples to communicate and resolve their problems.
