Father Benedict’s Good Friday Video for Good Counsel

Posted by | Mar 30, 2018 | No Comments

Dear Friend,

Several years ago, Good Counsel had the opportunity to chat with Father Benedict Groeschel, CFR, about several things including one of his favorite days of the year, Good Friday.

Father Benedict spent many years preaching at Good Friday Services but, as his health began to fade he was no longer able to do so.

Here in the last Good Friday reflection Father Benedict would make before his death in 2014, Good Counsel’s co-founder speaks about the importance of this day and how appreciative he is of all who support the work of Good Counsel. Read More

It’s a boy! Please join us as we welcome baby Ky-mani, born Thursday, March 22, 2018.  He is beautiful and healthy weighing 6 pounds, 13 ounces. He and his mom are doing great!  Ky-mani is the 1,112th baby born into our Good Counsel family.

Ky-mani’s life was saved because of you!  He and all the babies born here at Good Counsel have been saved because of your faithful, prayerful support, and financial generosity.  Because of you, we never say no to any homeless, pregnant mother in need.  We remain grateful to serve the poorest of the poor providing a stable, homey environment, where guidance and comfort can be given and love can be lavished.

Would you like to provide a new beginning for a mother & baby? Please click here to find out how.

The Life-Changing Power of the Resurrection

Victoria’s support system growing up consisted of counselors at the Department of Social Services. She had no family. No friends . . .

She found a boyfriend and hoped life would improve. But then she became pregnant—he left, and she was kicked out of the place she’d been living. Victoria had no idea how she’d survive, let alone have her baby. Be a mother? It seemed impossible. Read More

A Beautiful Miracle at the Abortion Clinic Door

Choosing Life & Becoming an R.N.

Today Good Counsel celebrates its 33rd Anniversary. As a way of expressing our deepest gratitude to God and all of our friends, supporters and staff that have made our mission possible, here is an inspirational story about one of our moms who turned her life around.

Dolly was six months pregnant and about to enter an abortion clinic. Directly above the abortion clinic was a pro-life ministry. It was there that Dolly, “met this beautiful lady and she told me we have an organization that can help you with your baby… Good Counsel.”

Right away Dolly was welcomed into a Good Counsel home where she was met with love, support, guidance, and hope when she had nothing and no way to support herself and her baby.  Dolly stayed at Good Counsel for a year and a half to complete her plan to reach her goals and move on to a new life with her son. Watch this video to see Dolly’s inspiring story.

I’m sure you’ve heard the expression, “March roars in like a lion…” Nothing could be more true this year as many states in the Northeast were hit by the Nor’easter this past weekend. And today Winter Storm Quinn is impacting the states where most of our Good Counsel homes are located.

Thankfully, none of our homes were damaged by this weekend’s storm. However, I still need help paying our winter heating bills, and this cold weather is a good reminder for us to share this important appeal. Read More
