pro-life volunteering at Good Counsel Network Ireland could well be for you! The Good Counsel Network, aka The Women’s Counselling Network was set up in Dublin in 1995 with a handful of volunteers. As the success of the work became apparent over the years many more people were attracted to pro-life volunteering.

Our mission is clear cut
Women facing crisis pregnancies can be under tremendous pressure due to the attitudes of society, family circumstances, peer influence, financial difficulties and so on. By the time we meet them, most are suffering from abortion tunnel vision and are therefore not open to any other options. They may have family concerns giving rise to stress in relation to their pregnancy. There may be subtle pressures in work not to get pregnant for career reasons.This is what makes the work at Good Counsel Network so challenging. Together, we make make the difference, and help women in crisis pregnancies.
Are you considering volunteering?
It is great that you want to volunteer and build a broad Good Counsel Network support base. We’ve had many challenges over the years, and always managed them. Pregnant women need our support. Together we can evaluate their needs, give them material support, a friendly voice and hope for the future. We get great satisfaction when we know we have helped a mother bring her child into the world. The mother too has no regrets, as a gift of life becomes her reality.

Women facing a crisis pregnancy may not be in a financial position to have a baby. Or they may have family concerns giving rise to stress in relation to their pregnancy. There may also be other pressures, like careerism in their work place.
We welcome your consideration to volunteer with Good Counsel to help build a broader counselling support base. You may not have the ability to deal with difficult cases. But your pro-life volunteering presence is all it needs to begin helping crisis pregnant women. These women deserve our non judgmental support. And being part of a team enables our volunteers to compliment & supplement the work at hand.
The Christ Centred approach to voluntary work
Adoration is a powerful spiritual approach to pro-life volunteering. At Good Counsel Network, we believe that adoration has an important role for supporting women facing a crisis pregnancy. Our centre has a discreet adoration chapel, so our volunteers can align their works to Christ. This is important from two perspectives. The 1st importance is that Christ is Our King and He will support our efforts. Jesus gives us courage and wisdom to help pregnant women in need. The 2nd importance is the location of the adoration chapel. By having adoration in the centre’s discreet chapel room, it imbues the purpose of our Good Counsel charism. Pro-life volunteering at our ministry comes with the sense of mission and of God’s will. With these 2 perspectives comes a 3rd fruitful development. That fruit being a fraternity of volunteers. Pro-life volunteering builds up God’s Kingdom.

Good Counsel Network Ireland are now online. This is great news for unexpectedly pregnant women in Ireland. We are here to help women through their crisis pregnancy in a compassionate, non-judgemental and professional way. Women today are often sold the idea of having a free choice, yet so many make the same bad choice on the back of pressure from peers who do not have their best interests at heart. Many women choose abortion and find themselves having later regrets. They have to live the consequences and conceal this aspect of their life. Those who advocate abortion for these vulnerable women do not have to live with the choice of terminating their pregnancy. They do not have to live with future complications in reproductive health and they do not have to brood over what may have been.
