Mothers’ Day Event!
is a pregnancy and support ministry launched by the Washington State Catholic bishops with the promise of care from pregnancy to the child’s fifth birthday to mothers and fathers – no matter their beliefs. The PREPARES program celebrates the gift of life and makes sure that no child – born or unborn - is ever abandoned or alone.
This ministry is new to St. John’s, comprised of parish volunteers seeking a way to help those in need. Funding and contributions to this new ministry rely solely on the generosity of the St. John the Baptist community.
To mark its commencement, the PREPARES team of St. John the Baptist is holding a “needs drive.” We will be collecting new or gently used items to fill PREPARES Support Bags, which will then be distributed to mothers in need.
Appropriate items to donate include:
- Diapers and pull-ups
- Diaper wipes
- Baby blankets
- Puzzles, toys and beginner books
- Pajamas, underwear and socks (Ages infant-5 years)
- Comfy household socks for Mom
- Maternity Store Gift Cards
- Financial contributions
May 8/9 (Mothers’ Day Weekend), after each Mass.
Parking lot “drop off” Monday, May 10 -Wednesday, May 12, noon – 2:00PM and 5:00-7:00PM each day.
