In 2013, a young woman, Marissa Nichols, was inspired to open a Catholic pregnancy care center in San Jose in order to bring help to women and their families facing crisis pregnancies. Her goal was to be able to give them an option other than abortion.
Marissa did not ask for money from her supporters; she asked them for their prayers; particularly, for them to pray the rosary. She and other supporters of her vision went from parish to parish asking the congregations to pledge to say rosaries for the success of her mission. Thousands of rosary pledges were received.
On August 11, 2016, the inspiration of a young woman became a reality when Bishop Patrick McGrath celebrated Mass at Saint Martin of Tours, and then led a faithful procession to the GHS Women’s Center for the Blessing of the Guadalupe Hope Society Women’s Medical Clinic.
Now, GHS is ready to take the next step so they can start bringing help to women and their families who are facing a crisis pregnancy.
The Center is searching for a Registered Nurse (RN) who would like to work in a faith-based organization committed to this mission. The position of Nurse Manager would be expected to work 15 to 25 hours per week. A current and valid RN License, CPR certification and insurance is required. The candidate must also be willing to follow and adhere to the Vision, Mission and Statement of Faith of the Center.
Experience working as an OB/GYN or Labor and Delivery Nurse is preferred. All interested parties may inquire and request a job application by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling the Executive Director, Oscar Martinez at (408) 447-5433.
GHS Women’s Center is also looking for volunteers to help at the Clinic as office personnel, peer representatives and board members.
