Elizabeth Ministry volunteers are God’s instruments for supporting other women who bring (or wish to bring) new life into the world.

Today at St. Margaret Mary Parish, Elizabeth Ministry volunteers are helping other women celebrate their role in God’s plan of creation. Volunteers help during pregnancy and childbirth. They offer support when conceiving is difficult. They share many of the joys and sorrows that a mother experiences throughout her life span. Elizabeth Ministry volunteers do all these things with a love that only one woman can offer another.

"My favorite part of the day is visiting the new moms... often there are tears - tears of happiness and thanksgiving that God has been so good..."
- Chris Bush Here is the complete reflection
