Celebrating the dignity of women choosing life

Dear Holy Name Parishioners,
We are excited to invite you to participate in our ministry that champions the Pro-Life cause while supporting struggling mothers and babies in a beautiful and practical way. Each month, one mother who is receiving aid from one of Marisol’s crisis pregnancy centers will choose items that she needs to care for her new baby. I will then compile those selections in a Baby Registry on Amazon to share with you. Through this registry, you will be able to purchase items and/or contribute money towards an item. No dollar amount is too small, but we encourage you to be generous in your support of these women who choose life in the face of overwhelming circumstances.

God Bless,
Colleen and Brennan Pecha

Please note: To ensure that the items make it to the mother before her due date, the registry will close on February 26th.

Our February Mother’s Story

Jodie* came to Marisol Health for a free pregnancy test. She was uncertain about what life would mean for her and her boyfriend if she was pregnant. After discovering a positive pregnancy test, Jodie had an ultrasound and visit with our team, sharing “my boyfriend drinks a lot. I don’t want to leave him, but I’m so depressed and anxious about our relationship. I just wish he’d get better.” Jodie began to meet with the Marisol Health Family Development Specialist who referred her to a Marisol Health licensed therapist to begin the healing journey of processing her emotions, reminding her of her dignity and self worth, and helping her to have healthy communication and relationship patterns. Jodie continued to be seen at Marisol for her medical appointments while working towards her goals. She reported, “I want to be the best mom I can be for my toddler and this new baby. It feels like hard work, but I’m grateful I’m not alone.” Jodie is due in March 2024 and, with the support of our team, is moving towards becoming who she knows she really is.
