More than 50 expectant mothers attended an Oct. 26 community baby shower sponsored by archdiocesan Catholic Social Services (CSS) at its Northeast Family Service Center in Philadelphia.

The gathering was one of several that CSS has held throughout the area this year. Each event includes free baby items, infant care workshops, raffles and food. In addition, CSS staffers and partners provide attendees with information about benefits and resources to assist them.

Last year, CSS assisted more than 5,000 expectant mothers, a number the agency is looking to double, according to Amy Stoner, CSS’s community-based services director.

Help keep Catholic media free, support CatholicPhilly.com

You may have noticed “pay walls” greeting you when you visit the websites of newspapers and magazines, both large and small. These mechanisms allow you to read a few articles for free before you’ve got to pay an annual fee if you want to see more.

You won’t find a pay wall on CatholicPhilly.com because we’re more than a news organization. We’re informing, inspiring and forming readers in the Catholic faith every day through the news, features and commentaries that we post on this site and share across social media.

It costs money to provide high-quality coverage of the local Catholic communities we primarily serve, while also distributing national and world news of interest to Catholics, plus the orthodox teachings of the Catholic faith.

Help us in this mission by making a single gift of $40, $50, $100, or more. Your gift will strengthen the fabric of our entire Catholic community.
