Catholic Daughters hold successful baby shower

clothing diapers and other items

The Catholic Daughters Court 1690 collected clothing, diapers and supplies to support new mothers.

Fulfilling its effort to support women who have given birth and are in need of assistance, Catholic Daughters Court #1690 of St. Bernard’s Church in Levittown holds an annual baby shower collecting contributions of baby clothing, diapers and supplies from the congregation. This year’s collection resulted in several carloads of donations to be delivered to two local organizations dedicated to help women who are pregnant or who have given birth.

The contributions support the work and services provided by Birthright in Wantagh and Momma’s House, which recently relocated to the former convent at St. Bernard’s Church property.

Birthright is an organization committed to providing confidential, non-judgmental support to any woman who is pregnant or thinks she might be pregnant, no matter her age, race, circumstances, religion, marital status or financial situation. For more information go to or call 516-785-4070.

MOMMA’s House provides housing for young mothers aged 18 to 24 years and their babies for approximately two years, allowing the young mothers to continue education or vocational experience interrupted by pregnancy. With guidance and direction, the young mothers can learn to support themselves and their children independently. For more information, go to or call 516-781-8637.
