PREPARES is a pro-life ministry that helps to care for pregnant moms and support families with small children 0-5yrs old. We operate under two tiers:
- The first tier is providing mentorship as family companions for those seeking support to help navigate the emotional challenges of raising a family by offering friendship and support to new or struggling parents in need.
- The second tier offers basic needs for a child from 0-5yrs, helping families who may have some financial challenges to cover the basic costs of needful items such as diapers and wipes, clothing, hygiene type products, blankets, etc. These items we get are donated by our parishioners and are gently used or new items.
The basic needs tier is provided via Mary’s Little Tots Shop which is open every 2nd and 4th Tuesday of the month from 10:00am-12:00pm(noon). We are closed during holidays, snow events, and on rare occasions, we may be closed if there is a funeral. Parishioner donations occur in the vestibule area every First week of the month.
We also take monetary donations via the InFellowship online giving through OLSOS or SCRIP which not only supports our school, but allows us to buy items as our inventory requires. All monies donated to the Prepares ministry at Star are managed and stay here to support our parish community only.
