On Thursday 12 November at 9 AM there will be a Mass “For Parents Who Lost Children.” Everyone is invited to attend, whether or not you are a parent and whether or not you have lost a child (including in utero). Parents are invited to bring a picture of the child, even if there are other people in the picture, and place the picture in the sanctuary in front of the altar or on the steps before Mass that morning.
Immediately following Mass there will be a pot-luck reception in our parish hall. Everyone is invited to bring something to share: favorite snacks/food of the child, as well as cherished memories. No RSVP is needed, and non-parishioner friends and neighbors are invited.
