I went to mass this Sunday, July 27, 2014, in my parish, in Providence, RI, and picked a church bulletin, where I browsed a note, Saint Gabriel’s Call, which read as follows:
“Saint Gabriel’s Call reaches out to women who are pregnant, desperate, and in need of assistance through a confidential intervention program. The program can make things easier for mothers-to-be in a local and personal way by providing material needs, friendship and guidance during a difficult time. The service also offers access to social ministry services provided through the Roman Catholic Diocese of Providence’s Catholic Charities/Social Ministry. If you or someone you know needs help, please call the Office of Life and Family Ministry at 421-7833 extension 218.”
Brethren, if you read a similar note in your parish’s bulletin, please communicate the information to the public to assist brethren in critical stages of their lives.
