October is Respect Life month and St. Patrick is hosting a Baby Bottle Fundraiser to support Aid for Women. Aid for Women is a not-for-profit organization that helps thousands of women each year in the Chicago metropolitan area who find themselves facing unexpected and difficult pregnancies. Aid for Women operates five pregnancy care centers and two residential programs.  


You can provide essential funding to allow Aid for Women to continue their live-saving work in three ways:  


  • You can participate in a Virtual Baby Bottle Fundraiser by making your donation via the donation page at: HelpAidforWomen.org/babybottle (please indicate “St. Patrick-Lake Forest” as the sponsoring parish).

  • Pick up a baby bottle after Mass the weekend of October 24 - 25. Fill that bottle with your donation and return it the following weekend—October 30 - November 1.


  • Drop off a check made payable to “Aid for Women” in the donation boxes in the Gathering Area or at the Ministry Office during office hours.


Your donation, no matter what amount, will make a difference in the life of a mother and her baby.  We thank you in advance for your support of Aid for Women! May God bless you abundantly for your generosity.
