Seeking Your Support for Our Lenten Project

1 and Ave Maria Press are partnering on this Lenten project to provide spiritual support to expectant mothers. We hope to send 50 copies of A Catholic Mother’s Companion to Pregnancy—a week-by-week spiritual companion for pregnant women—to 20 pregnancy centers around the United States. Your donations will be used solely to help us achieve this goal. For each $10 donation one book will be sent to a pregnancy center and aid a mother who has chosen life, often under difficult circumstances.

Our aim with this Lenten project is to benefit women with the guidance and companionship of the book and encourage them to walk with Mary. I hope you’ll prayerfully consider joining us.

You can learn more about this project and make your donation online at Indiegogo or make your donation by check to:

Ave Maria Press
Attn: Karey Circosta
P.O. Box 428
Notre Dame, IN 46556

Please notify me by email to if you are donating by check so we can verify your gift as part of the $500 matching grant we have received.

    I love this book! I have been reading it through my pregnancy, and it has helped me a lot. I have had a really rough pregnancy journey, with a lot of complications and multiple diagnosis of infertility, and the book was a great comfort. Despite tons of obstacles, my husband and I are expecting our healthy little full term miracle baby any day now! I wrote about my pregnancy journey on my blog:
