During each Mass Oct. 1-2, parishioners were encouraged to donated items for the pregnancy center from a suggested list. Each church had a baby crib set up for collecting the items. The committee also hosted a baby shower that included a short presentation by Heartbeat, games and refreshments.
St. Joseph Central Catholic High School students also took part in collecting items for the project.
Heartbeat of Fremont is a pregnancy center supported by many churches and volunteers whose primary purpose is to provide alternatives to abortion and to support women through pregnancy and early childhood care. All of the work done by Heartbeat is done through donations.
The Catholic Community of Sandusky County helped found Heartbeat of Fremont and continues to support its important work.
The students who coordinated this project include Jessica Zavela, Katie Shell, Kelsey Nevius and Tricia Reinhart. Pat Heyman was the adult leader for the St. Ann Social Concerns Heartbeat Project.
