PREPARES

Pregnancy and Parenting Support (PREPARES) is a statewide initiative of the Catholic Bishops of Washington State.  

PREPARES

It provides pregnancy and parenting support services through Catholic parishes across Washington State, serving all families from pregnancy to their child's fifth birthday. All are welcome to participate in the free support that PREPARES provides.

Visit the PREPARES web site for more information.

Support

PREPARES supports the commitment to the sanctity of human life, especially in its most vulnerable early stages. It seeks not only to assure healthy births and avoid the tragedy of abortion, but also to provide emotional support to nurture healthy and flourishing relationships that uphold the vision of the family as the essential unit of society.

Cornerstone Catholic Conference

This series of conferences offers Catholics from around Washington State an opportunity to come together for informative and motivational presentations and prayer.

Cornerstone Catholic Conference

The mission of the Cornerstone Catholic Conference is to inspire and educate Catholics and others to continue working together to protect all human life: the unborn, individuals who live in poverty or on the margins of society, and people at the end of life.

2019 Cornerstone

The third Cornerstone conference was held October 18-19, 2019. It was a wonderful gathering - full of inspiring speakers, helpful workshops, and many opportunities to grow in fellowship with Catholics from across the state of Washington. 

The first Cornerstone Conference was held in 2014 and the second in 2017.
