St. Charles Garnier, Kelowna, B.C.
When members of St. Charles Garnier Parish Council (Kelowna, BC) took on a mentorship program to assist young, single women facing a pregnancy alone, little did we know that four years later, we would have welcomed five beautiful babies. We stay in contact with each young mom and support her throughout her pregnancy. A baby shower is held, with a birth announcement and photo placed in the parish bulletin. Knowing she is not alone gives her the strength and courage to face challenges that lay ahead. For our members, this has been a truly rewarding experience.
