Advent Baby Shower

As we await the coming of the child Jesus, it seems fitting that we would reflect and gather items for the smallest in our midst. We participate in the heart of Mary who wrapped the baby in warmth, sought to meet His needs and poured herself out for the One who could not do it for Himself.

Each year, thousands of baby items come into our closets across the Diocese, and each year, thousands of items go out to families who need them. They are distributed to people in our parishes, Catholic Family Services, foster homes, hospitals, Birthright, domestic shelters and Native American ministries.
