In the heart of the Easter season, amidst the blossoming of new life and spiritual renewal, Good Counsel's maternity homes celebrate a profound milestone — the baptism of four precious babies. These baptisms not only welcome new souls into the embrace of faith but serve as a powerful catalyst for a family life well ordered and rooted in God's goodness.

At Good Counsel, we provide a haven for expectant mothers, offering support, guidance, and resources to empower them on their journey to motherhood. While rooted in the Catholic tradition, we welcome individuals from all walks of life, irrespective of their religious beliefs or affiliations.

Central to our ethos is the principle of autonomy and free will, just as God intended. The decision to have their babies baptized at a Catholic Church is entirely voluntary and reflective of each mother's individual choice. While we do provide opportunities for spiritual growth through monthly masses and spirituality classes, we do so without coercion or pressure. Instead, we strive to create a nurturing environment where mothers can explore their faith at their own pace, free from judgment or expectation.

The recent baptisms mark a poignant moment in the lives of these mothers and their children. It's a testament to their journey of self-discovery, resilience, and hope. As they take this step into the realm of faith, we stand alongside them, offering our unwavering support and encouragement.

We invite you to join us in celebrating these new beginnings and to keep these mothers and their babies in your prayers. Let us extend a warm welcome to them as they embark on this spiritual journey, embracing the love and grace that surrounds them.

At Good Counsel, we are honored to be part of the lives of these courageous women and their children. Together, let us continue to foster a community of compassion, acceptance, and faith. Praise God for His goodness and thank you for your support.
