Pro-Life Ministries

U.S. Catholic Bishops, Pastoral Plan

“Blessing of the Child in the Womb.”
A wonderful way to reach out to parents and to the child in the womb of the mother and extend the gracious greeting of Christ, the “Blessing” is explained and extended in a booklet that Archbishop Kurtz co-authored called Gift of Joy. Please consider sharing this booklet with any expectant parents you may know.  To order, go to www.osv.com or www.amazon.com.
