Pro-life volunteering at Good Counsel Network Ireland is very rewarding. Supporting women through their crisis pregnancy can bring great joy to your heart. There are many supportive roles you can consider playing when pro-life volunteering with Good Counsel Network.
pro-life volunteering helps to support women who are facing a crisis pregnancy through practical support.
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.

It is easy to volunteer to our Good Counsel Network. We are always happy to have new volunteers help women face their crisis pregnancy.

If you feel called to street contact, and / or private in house adoration, we’d like to hear from you. Contact us by email, leave us your details and we’ll respond. You can visit our pro-life volunteering centre over a cup of tea, and meet our voluntary directors. We look forward to your support.
