Welcome to Praying College Moms

Praying College Moms is a non-profit 501 (3) (c) 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. Browse through our website to learn more about our work. 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.

Thank You!

The wonderful new book is "And So We Pray, Supporting Young Adults Through the College Years" is now available!  Author Maribeth Harper's second book in the And So We Pray series, written for the Praying College Moms, is filled the same encouragement to know the Lord as in the first book in the series, And So We Pray.  More of the same amazing real-life stories told by women who generously wanted to help you. More of the same sound Scripture-based advice for shepherding young adults through the college years. In this edition, Maribeth addresses many more "hot-button" topics college-aged young adults face and helps parents to navigate those challenging circumstances with truths from the Catholic faith.

Our group is 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 group is meant to be a pillar of strength and an indispensable resource for women at this stage in life. If a group is not in your area - We can help you start a group!
