Supporting Women's Care Centers
Pregnant and parenting moms in need are in our surrounding communities. As Pope Francis reminds us, our parishes need to be “islands of mercy in the midst of a sea of indifference.” Everyone in the parish community should know where to refer a pregnant woman in need.
The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) has marked the 25th anniversary year of Evangeli vitae by launching “Walking with Moms in Need: A Year of Service” — inviting parishes to communicate resources to pregnant moms and families in need.
St. Mary’s Visitation parish has a long history of support for local women's care centers, generously donating supplies, clothing, diapers and money to support the pro life efforts for women and families in need.
Due to COVID restrictions, SMV Respect Life Ministry is unable to host baby showers, diaper drives and baby bottle change collections at this time. Instead, we encourage you to donate generously to the organizations who rely heavily on our support in order to perform their wonderful pro life ministry:

Women's Support Center
Women's Support Center is a very busy Catholic, pro-life crisis pregnancy help center on 21st and Wisconsin between Marquette University and Planned Parenthood serving approximately 150-200 women a month. All services they offer are 100% free and include pregnancy tests, ultrasounds, counseling against abortion, post-abortion counseling, teaching natural family planning, breast feeding classes and much more. They additionally provide material support through their “Baby Store” where women receive free supplies from diapers and wipes to clothing, formula, blankets and more.
A major focus and mission for the center is the promotion of chastity. They believe that birth control is a root cause of abortion and brings great physical as well as spiritual harm to our whole society. At the WSC they effectively teach about the physical and spiritual harms of birth control, the importance of chastity and the beauty and sacredness of marriage - about 80% of those who go to them get off birth control and 65% commit to chastity!
Please help them continue their life-saving mission by clicking here https://www.wscmil.org/donations/ and donating today!
