October is Respect Life Month

 Baby Bottle Campaign Kicks Off  on RESPECT LIFE SUNDAY   Pick up your baby bottle to help Catholic Charities’ Mother and Child Assistance Fund provide women who are considering adoption and/or parenting with financial assistance.  Each gift of support will help women and babies right here in Southern Minnesota!  When new and expectant mothers apply for financial assistance, they not only receive help with rent or utilities, they also learn important financial literacy skills and receive parenting education.  They gain support from a caring social worker and have opportunities to meet other new parents for support and community.
