A CatholicMom.com Project: Providing Spiritual Support for Pregnant Women

A Lenten project

CatholicMom.com and Ave Maria Press are partnering on this Lenten project to provide spiritual support to pregnant women.

We’re running this campaign through Good Friday, March 22, 2013.

Our goal

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 (listed below).


The driving force to this campaign is the knowledge that there are a number of people who can benefit from the guidance and companionship of the book, but who can’t afford it or wouldn’t know it is available. There are many ways to show support for women in unplanned pregnancies, and encouraging these young and often scared women to walk with Mary is one way.

“I used to volunteer in a pregnancy center. It broke my heart. After I had my own kids, women who seek help from pregnancy centers became an even more intimate part of my prayers. To share my book with them is the least I can do.”

– Sarah Reinhard, Author of A Catholic Mother’s Companion to Pregnnacy

Your role

Your donation at Indiegogo will cover the cost of the book and the shipping.

The pregnancy centers will benefit by receiving copies of the book, which serves as a spiritual resource to women they serve who make the courageous decision to carry their pregnancies to term. 

Simply make a donation at Indiegogo in increments of $10 and Ave Maria Press will handle the rest.

You can also give by check:

Ave Maria Press

Please notify Lisa by email (lisa@catholicmom.com) if you are donating by check so we can verify your gift as part of the $500 matching grant we have received.
