ProLife Corner - Event Calendar

Prolife Corner | Event Calendar

There are many ways in which participation in prolife movements is being asked.  At Maternity of Mary and Holy Childhood, we host several events during the course of the year in which fundraising for prolife initiatives is at our core.  Due to Covid-19, we have been forced to limit in person activities but are always interested and open to virtual options as well.  Below is a list of events we currently have in the works.  

If you know of more that can help expand our prolife brand, please feel free to contact us with ways you would like to be involved!
