Archbishop Ordains Five Men to the Transitional Diaconate

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.
