Mary's Place is a home for pregnant and parenting women that provides support in an environment of reverence and love. Mary's Place welcomes women of all faiths and strives to empower them with stability and independence, while promoting the inherent dignity of both mother and child.
“I feel that the greatest destroyer of peace today is abortion, because it is a war against the child, a direct killing of the innocent child, murder by the mother herself.”
-Mother Teresa of Calcutta
In our present social context, marked by a dramatic struggle between the "culture of life" and the "culture of death", there is a need to develop a deep critical sense, capable of discerning true values and authentic needs. What is urgently called for is a general mobilization of consciences and a united ethical effort to activate a great campaign in support of life. All together, we must build a new culture of life.
-St. Pope John Paul II, Evangelium vitae no. 95
We are challenged to assess our efforts in building a culture of life and to increase our outreach to pregnant and parenting women in need. We are called to support a culture of life in whatever context we find ourselves and in this way we dignify the existence of the most vulnerable in our society, the unborn.
