Baking for Babies Cinnamon Roll Fundraiser
Fresh and delicious cinnamon rolls will be on sale at Holy Name of Jesus after all Masses Jan. 19-21! The annual Baking for Babies cinnamon roll fundraiser is sponsored by HNOJ’s A Community Caring for Life group. All proceeds go towards supporting moms at local pregnancy centers.
Cost is a free-will donation. Some people have asked how they can donate as they will not be able to attend the event. People may either click here to give online or mail or drop off a check made out to Holy Name of Jesus with a note that it is for ACCL - Baking for Babies.
We need volunteers! This is a great way to serve as an individual, family or group. Volunteers are needed in two to three-hour shifts for baking, icing, assembling and selling rolls. All volunteer hours and cinnamon roll sales will be during the weekend of Jan. 19-21. Please sign up to volunteer today!
Baking for Babies 2024
Two of the sweetest things in the world are babies and deliciously glazed cinnamon rolls. A Community Caring for Life (ACCL) is hosting Baking for Babies Pro-Life Cinnamon Roll Bake and Sale event Jan. 19-21. This will be the 32nd year the ACCL has put on this event. This tradition started in January because it’s the same month and anniversary of the Roe vs. Wade decision when the Supreme Court legalized abortion on demand in all 50 states in 1973.
We are pleased that on June 24, 2022, Supreme Court case Dobbs vs. Jackson Women’s Center overturned Roe vs. Wade, placing the writing and enforcement of abortion legislation on individual states. In Minnesota, the reality is abortion remains legal, and many laws that were in place to protect and support women and their preborn child are gone.
At Holy Name of Jesus, ACCL will continue to support women facing unexpected pregnancy or challenging pregnancies. Pope Francis reminds us, “Our parishes need to be islands of mercy in the midst of a sea of indifference.” Our bishops, pastors and parish leaders want our church members to be informed on how to help. Everyone in our parish should know where to refer a pregnant woman in need. While we put on our most well-known pro-life event of the year, the ACCL is offering you a chance to get to know the organizations we will be supporting. If you’re volunteering to frost or assemble cinnamon rolls, you will have the opportunity to meet one of them.
The ACCL committee will give the money raised from our Baking for Babies event to organizations like Pro-Life Action Ministries and Pro-Life Across America. They speak messages of hope and encouragement by counseling on the sidewalk or phone to abortion-minded women. SouthWest Options for Women (SWOW) in Eden Prairie, Crystal Women’s Clinic (CWC), Abria in Minneapolis and St. Paul, are pregnancy resource centers near us offering free pregnancy testing, ultrasounds, education, counseling and supplies for mothers to make that life choice an easier one. Lastly, Elevate Life is an organization that provides staff and volunteer training, marketing assistance, special grants and more to their affiliate pregnancy resource centers.
Baking for Babies Pro-Life Cinnamon Roll Bake and Sale needs volunteers for frosting and assembling Friday and Saturday as well as selling rolls Saturday and Sunday. Please sign up by the following link here.
