We have transitioned our parenting and prenatal classes online!

All in-person pregnancy and parenting classes have been cancelled indefinitely in accordance with recommended guidelines from the Center for Disease Control (CDC) due to COVID-19 (coronavirus). We will let the community know when we are able to provide in-person services and classes. Catholic Charities’ Blessed Beginnings program is still helping with diapers and other baby items on an individual basis, but you must be enrolled in our program.

The Blessed Beginnings Pregnancy and Parenting Life Center is committed to the sanctity of human life, especially in its most vulnerable early stages. As a pro-life agency that honors every single human being with the dignity and respect they deserve, we are dedicated to providing the support and education young parents who choose life need to have happy, healthy babies and children. Our program focuses on the critical time period from the woman’s pregnancy through the age of five—a child’s most formative years.

Free Prenatal and Parenting Classes available in both English and Spanish.
