Hi, I haven't published anything for awhile up here on Catholic 365! But, I guess I just needed to find something to share about.
Well, "Let your light shine before men." This is a quote from the Gospel!
How can we do that?
How about lighting a candle once a day and praying for other Catholics?! Great idea!
Where can you get a nice Catholic candle?
Well, great, glad you asked - I am partnering with the Corda Candle company. Buy a candle using the "doula" code or our link below and you will be also giving back to a much needed scholarship fund for Catholic doulas! (We will share link below).
What's a doula? You maybe asking yourself now. A doula is a professional who offers non-medical support for Catholic mothers either during labor and childbirth or postpartum time frame.
A short little story here, I had a couple from another state sign up for my childbirth class online and we met one time via zoom and then boom they have their baby the next day - early at 34 weeks! I have become kind of their postpartum virtual support doula since then - answering questions and helping as much as I can from a distance - I figured it was the least I could do since they had paid for the classes! Please pray for their baby!
So, that's kind of what a doula does - she is there for support for a family. I can help long distance like above or I can go in person to a birth or a home and help with things the family needs!
Catholic Doula Program is what our fundraiser for candles is supporting. We at Catholic Doula train doulas and offer the online childbirth classes for Catholic parents! Go to www.catholicdoula.com to learn more about what we are offering this season!
Now, back to the candles - so if you want to help support our fundraiser - buy a candle and we get 25% back towards our scholarship fund. Go here to shop: https://cordacandles.com/pages/doula?bg_ref=VpNI2JCORc
Another fundraiser (for Catholic doula scholarships) I am also doing is through my chapel veil website on Etsy - I just listed new veils and they are either 15% off (newer ones or 20% off) - Choose a chapel veil and I"ll put all proceeds towards our scholarship fund as well! Win-win for all of us - plus these veils make a great gift for Christmas - go check out Etsy shop:
and if you think you want to become a doula and apply for the scholarship fund - please use contact page at https://www.catholicdoula.com/contact.html#/
Thank you so much!
