As shared in a recent St. Louis Review article by Dave Lueking

"In the Archdiocese of St. Louis, the Permanent Diaconate, in conjunction with the Respect Life Apostolate, helps moms and families keep babies high and dry.

The third annual Deacon Diaper Drive will run for 16 days over three weekends at parishes throughout the archdiocese, beginning the weekend of March 17-18 and concluding on Easter Sunday. Parishioners are asked to donate bags, boxes or cases of diapers at weekend Masses, with 100 percent of the donations staying local. A parish's St. Vincent de Paul society or food pantry, or a nearby women's shelter or crisis nursery, will distribute the diapers.

In two years for the drive, St. Louis Catholics have donated 310,000 diapers for newborns, infants and toddlers. Diapers are needed in all sizes, from newborn to size 6 and pull-ups, to ensure a good range in sizes for moms and families in need. Adult diapers are welcomed as well.

Deacon Jim Carter is spearheading the drive this year. For questions, email him at DeaconJimCarter@gmail.com."
