Welcome to Praying College Moms

Praying College Moms is a non-profit 501 (c) (3) religious organization that provides outreach and resources to mothers of college-aged children. The Praying College Moms local groups provide invaluable service in their faith communities, such as mentorship, encouragement, perspective, resources and networking with others who are going through the same experiences. In addition to our Bible study and prayer groups, we have socials and activities to deepen our friendships so our members can join together for a strength of purpose. Join us in our prayer for our college students: "They are our future and they need our united prayers that God will strengthen them and give them the grace to stand for all that is good and true on campus."


We pray for our children who are on a new journey in their lives--may they be safe and successful, living their lives with dignity and honor, being true to the values taught by their families and having the courage to share their trust in God with all those they encounter.

Care Packages for Homeless College Students

PCMs prepare and deliver Care Packages to homeless college students (paid for by Guardian Angels - people who generously donate money to these deserving students).  These  students are selected by organizations dedicated to serving and supporting homeless college students. The PCM Care Packages are full of treats, useful items and fun inspiration, all blessed by our Care Package Team.

PCM Group Meeting Locations

Our groups are open to praying moms of college-age (ranging from high school students to sons/daughters working/living on their own) of all faith denominations.  Through mutual support, prayer and friendship, the groups are pillars of strength and an indispensable resource for women at this stage in life.

Start A PCM Group

If a Praying College Moms group is not in your Parish or area - We can help you with support and resources to start a group!

Sharing Grace  Through Prayer

In addition to PCM's monthly ministries and our book series, And So We Pray, we support moms in their developing prayer life. Prayer and meditation opportunities in the Northern  Virginia region, as well as prayers submitted by our moms are found on this page.  PCM is at the forefront with embracing various types of prayer practices to deepen one's prayer life.
