Please help us during the Advent season to support the gift of life by participating in our annual campaign to aid A Woman's Concern.

We will donate all proceeds to A Woman's Concern to support mothers facing unexpected pregnancies and help them choose life.


Please return bottles to your child's classroom by Friday, January 4. Please see our A Women's Concern campaign flyer for more information. Thank you for your continued generosity and for whatever you are able to contribute to this worthy cause. May God bless you and your family this Advent.
