Catholics respond to diaper drive

Archdiocese Catholics have filled a necessary need for young families or mothers, contributing 185,000 diapers to the annual deacon's Lenten Diaper Drive — 60,000 more than the total of 125,000 collected in 2016. Over three weekends, culminating on Easter Sunday, the Office of the Diaconate coordinated parishes' collections throughout the Archdiocese of St. Louis, with the diapers either becoming part of parishes' ministries or going to local social service agencies of families or mothers in need.
