Mass, luncheon to honor adoption birth mothers

the Inland Register

(From the April 10, 2003 edition of the Inland Register)

Friday, May 9, Bishop Skylstad will celebrate Mass at St. Joseph Church, 1503 W. Dean, at noon, in a special commemoration of women who have placed babies for adoption.

The Mass is especially offered for birth mothers to acknowledge, honor and celebrate their motherhood. Women and families of any faith who share this common experience, or anyone touched by adoption, is invited to attend, as well as the general public.

A luncheon for birth mothers only will follow in the parish center. Attendance at the luncheon should be confirmed by May 7 by calling 747-4174.

The luncheon is co-sponsored by Catholic Charities, the Children’s Home Society of Washington, New Hope Child and Family Agency, and Spokane Consultants in Family Living.
