Pledge to Walk with Moms in Need

On Wednesday, March 25, 2020, the Church celebrates the Solemnity of the Annunciation of the Lord and the 25th anniversary of the papal encyclical Evangelium vitae (The Gospel of Life). This prophetic document, written by Pope St. John Paul II, reaffirmed the Church’s constant teaching on the value and inviolability of every human life.

In that landmark encyclical, Pope St. John Paul II challenged us:

With great openness and courage, we need to question how widespread is the culture of life today among individual Christians, families, groups and communities in our Dioceses. With equal clarity and determination we must identify the steps we are called to take in order to serve life in all its truth. (EV 95)

In honor of this anniversary and in answer to St. John Paul II’s call, the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops Committee on Pro-Life Activities has invited parishes with the support of their bishops and pastors to join a nationwide effort from March 25, 2020 to March 25, 2021 entitled: “Walking with Moms in Need: A Year of Service.”

The Inspiration Behind the Year of Service

This brief article dives more deeply into the inspiration for Walking with Moms in Need: A Year of Service found within the writing of St. John Paul II in The Gospel of Life.
