Event Details

October 15 is Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Day

Loss at any stage is traumatic. Early loss is often not acknowledged or discussed. The loss of a child can be very traumatic and unexpected at any age.

This simple service will give you the opportunity to stand with other people ‘who know’ the pain of losing a child.

This is a family friendly event.

We hope that this years event, during the day, will allow families to attend together as we hope to host a balloon release. If your family would like to have a balloon to release (or for each member of your family, or for each baby you want to remember) please fill out the registration form: https://goo.gl/forms/ehvRDOeTeYCvb1D63
This will ensure that we have enough balloons for all that wish to participate. There is no cost for the balloons.

We will have a basket of stones available if you’d like to wrote a note and place it in the Garden of Hope. We will also have Hope Boxes available for those who may find that grief resource a blessing. No cost.

NOTE: We will not be holding our full service this year, but a few simple moments in the Garden of Hope.

We will have coffee, hot chocolate and goodies to enjoy. Please dress warmly.

Extra parking is available in the upper lot.

If the weather is poor we will move inside.

Bring a friend, family member, support person…all are welcome!

Come and rejoice in your baby’s life, grieve, remember and find HOPE!
