A parish-based outreach to women in special times of motherhood. It is scripturally grounded in the relationship between the Blessed Virgin Mary and her cousin Elizabeth. The purpose of the ministry is to affirm, support, encourage, and assist women in response to their needs during the childbearing years.

Meetings are held monthly and include social activities and children’s playgroups.
