Living Out the Corporal Works of Mercy

The following was found in the parish bulletin of the Cathedral Basilica of Saints Peter and Paul in center city Philadelphia.  

Pro-life warriors are often belittled by pro-aborts and the main stream media as only caring about the baby in the womb and doing nothing for the mother and the baby once it’s born.  As you can see by the article below, this is not the case. Mothers’ Home is one of the oldest homes in the Greater Philadelphia area, started by the very people who are vilified with the lies of pro-aborts and their cohorts.  

Please read this article and if you can, send a donation to support them with their work.  

Mothers Home

Mothers’ Home is a residential shelter which provides a safe haven for vulnerable, pregnant women in a crisis who choose life as a sacred gift. Mothers’ Home is located in Darby, Pennsylvania and was founded in 1991 as a program to provide hope and support for young adult women who choose life for their unborn child despite rejection, abandonment, and ongoing obstacles. Mothers’ Home provides shelter for up to 28 women during their pregnancy and the first 6 months after their babies are born.

Mothers’ Home encourages the residents to celebrate the joy of new life while also preparing to become independent young women and caring mothers. They focus on the physical, emotional, intellectual, social, sexual, and spiritual dimensions of each resident’s life. To do this, Mothers’ Home promotes empowerment and self-sufficiency by providing residents:

Counseling services
Pre and postnatal health education
Childbirth and development classes
Parenting classes
Job readiness training
Housing search assistance
Educational classes on budgeting, legal, and nutrition
Initial personal and baby supplies
Supportive relationships

In the basement, a Community Outreach is provided via the Sharing Space which is comprised of a baby clothing and equipment boutique. Low-income families can come to shop for gently used baby clothing, equipment, and household items that have been donated.

Mothers’ Home is in need of new or lightly used items for babies and moms, including:
Baby formula (Similac Advance and Sensitive)
