A Word from the Director......

The sun was indeed shining on Sunday, June 1 as more than 140 supporters gathered for our first annual “Garden of Life” brunch on the grounds of Mount Loretto. In his keynote address, Deacon Jim Stahlnecker, who has served as a key figure in the pro-life movement on Staten Island, gave an overview of the efforts made over the last forty years to cultivate a true respect for life in our community. Despite the hostile environment in our city to infants in the womb, the Deacon spoke optimistically about our ability to sustain a family-friendly culture on our Island where children can develop their talents.

Families play a vital role both in the development of the person and in the flourishing of a society. As Saint John Paul II reminds us: The family has central importance in reference to the person. It is in this cradle of life and love that people are born and grow; when a child is conceived, society receives the gift of a new person who is called from the innermost depths of self to communion with others and to the giving of self to others.

Since Cross Road began in 1987, we have had the privilege to work in such a vibrant community along with other life-affirming organizations and families in providing assistance to expectant mothers and new families in need so that their infants will receive the love and support that will allow them to grow into responsible adults. The fruit of this effort was very much in evidence last month as we celebrated our graduation ceremony for the mothers in our “Earn-While-You-Learn” parenting program. (See below) This is the program maintained through your monthly donations to our Help Our Parents Excel (HOPE) campaign.

We awarded sixty-three certificates to the mothers for completing their pre-natal or parenting classes. The mothers were indeed motivated to attend these classes in order to earn Mommy Money to obtain needed baby items. While this incentive system encourages them to participate in the program, the warm reception they receive from the staff and volunteers reminds them that their children are important to all of us in the community.

I thank you for your continued support of this program. I assure you that we will redouble our own efforts to reach out to single mothers and young couples: encouraging them to respect the sanctity of human life and to recognize the advantages of a stable family environment for the development of their children.
