Mornings with Mary: Project Gabriel Baby Shower


Last Tuesday our Bible Study group
hosted a baby shower 
for the local Project Gabriel. 
It is an organization that provides support
for expectant mothers.
Details about Project Gabriel
can be found here.
The name stems from the angel
Gabriel who announced to Mary
about her role in the birth 
of our Savior.
I think that it is a fitting name,
don't you agree?

Giving thanks to Rebecca
for hosting Mornings with Mary!

In April, our parish always has a baby shower for Mary. Goods are collected and then are donated to our local pregnancy center to support babies and their mothers.

Doesn't it make your heart feel satisfied doing for such a wonderful cause?

Such grand and generous work!
Oh! But the years ahead of these
mothers and children...they need
the vigilance all along the way.

Gabriel is a great name for this project. Babyshowers are a very good tradition in the USA! We don't do this in my country. We give presents when the baby is born and treat the visitors to "Dutch rusk" and aniseed comfits, which are blue for a boy and pink for a girl.
Thank you for your post! Have a great week.
Wil, ABCW Team.
