Dear Editor: I enjoyed reading Father Christopher Heanue’s story (Dec. 12) about the newborn found in Holy Child Jesus Church. I especially enjoyed the three themes for evangelization.
The last paragraph is the one I want to draw attention to. The Bridge to Life has been in existence for over 23 years, helping young women in crisis. Please help us get the word out that we are also a safe haven if a scared new mom wants to bring her newborn to us.
Recently, a young mom, 13 years old, chose life for her daughter. She has been receiving assistance from us since before the baby was born. We have lots of work to do, especially with educating our young people.
We need help getting our message out. We sent a request to every church in Queens to have an ongoing advertisement in their bulletins.
Results from recent research shows only 30 percent of women with crisis pregnancy feels that they can receive help from their churches! How sad is that?
