St. Gianna’s Pregnancy Resource Center Receives $6,000 in Funding from the Archbishop’s Annual Appeal
New Haven, Conn. – In October, 2018, The St. Gianna Pregnancy Resource Center received a check in the amount of $8,000 from the Archbishop’s Annual Appeal through its Vicariate Outreach Program.
The funding will help St. Gianna’s continue its mission of showing God’s love and mercy to all mothers and their unborn babies in a gentle and caring manner, from initial encounter to birth and beyond. We provide encouragement, support and education during and after pregnancy. We provide a place where families can welcome the life of their child with confidence and joy! All educational and referral services as well as any baby items are free of charge.
A St. Gianna mom expressed, “The work that you carry out is astounding and I thank you again for helping myself and other mothers with our challenges. Never forget that you’re loved by many both big and tiny.” About the work they do at the center, Executive Director, Carolyn Falcigno can only say that this and so many other instances bring the true payday – a full heart working to affect lives for the better. We imagine a world where abortion becomes unthinkable.”
