New Beginnings (Mothers & Infants)
More than twenty years ago a pro-life group of non-denominational women decided to try and help pregnant women in need to have their babies.
The pastors of St. Mary Star of the Sea provided the space for New Beginnings to operate. Deliveries of formula, car seats, breast pumps, diapers, cribs, changing tables, strollers; whatever the newborn and Mother need are delivered to them.
This operation exists because of the charity of many people in our Community.
The Basilica of St. Mary Star of the Sea and Saint Peter’s in Big Pine have annual Baby Showers for New Beginnings. The Knights of Columbus in both Parishes provide funds to assist the new babies and mothers.
One hundred per cent of the charitable funds are expended on those in need. No expenses or salaries are deducted.
