They currently serve 200+ women per week in their three local Centers. Please pick up one of their baby bottles after Mass… fill it with a check, cash, or coins… and return it to one of their collection bassinets before the weekend Masses on March 16th & 17th. A representative is onsite to accept debit & credit card donations. Checks should be made out to Aid to Women Center. Thank you for your support of this worthy organization!

The KofC Ultrasound Fundraising Initiative provides funding to purchase costly ultrasound equipment for crisis pregnancy centers.

Tickets are $30/person. In addition, volunteers are needed to help after each Mass with taking reservations and handing out flyers.
