Be Not Afraid - Wine Tasting & Raffle Fundraiser

Thursday, December 5th


The Saint Patrick Respect Life Committee invites you to a wine tasting and raffle fundraiser for Be Not Afraid (BNA), a private non-profit organization which provides comprehensive case management to parents carrying to term following a prenatal diagnosis. BNA staff and peers strive to develop a relationship of trust while providing for the emotional and tangible needs of parents at diagnosis, during pregnancy, at birth and during the post postpartum period for up to one year. BNA believes that every baby is a gift, and we support parents not only in advocating for basic care, but also in obtaining the treatment they deem appropriate for their child after birth no matter the diagnosis. BNA follows the ethical teaching of the Catholic Church, but serves parents of all denominations.

Join us for a wine tasting, hors d’ oeuvres and an informative talk, ending with a wine raffle in the St. Patrick Family Life Center Great Hall on December 5th from 7 - 9 pm.
