We are saddened by the passing of Archbishop Naumann's mother Louise, who died early this morning in her sleep. Born in 1923, Louise lived an amazing, faith-filled life and brought joy to many.

Archbishop Naumann was able to visit her last night, and they prayed the rosary together. His latest column offers insight on her final days on earth and what she meant to his own faith journey: http://theleaven.org/maybe-god-is-keeping-her-here-not-for-her-but-for-me/

Please keep Louise and her family in your prayers.

Ways to Give


"Walking With Moms in Need - A Year of Service" - A new national initiative to identify gaps in support for mothers

Walking with Moms in Need, a year of service

Life Will Be Victorious - Naumann

Earlier in 2020, at the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) meeting, on behalf of its pro-life committee, Archbishop Joseph Naumann proposed a Nationwide Initiative of Prayer, Service and Witness to Life.  A centerpiece of this initiative is for each diocese to examine the resources available to mothers and families who are experiencing an untimely pregnancy.  Through this study of the resources, we are hoping to be able to identify where there are deficiencies or gaps of available support services — as well as opportunities to coordinate better existing resources — so that we can serve mothers and families more effectively.  Our culture often attempts to pit the best interests of women against the lives of their children. In reality, the opposite is true. The church seeks to love both mother and child.



The goals for the key initiatives of our 10-year Mutually Shared Vision were updated in 2019.
