Mass for those grieving death of a baby

| September 27, 2011 | 0 Comments

Parents who have experienced the death of a baby before or after birth are invited to attend the Mass for God’s Children at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 11, at Nativity of Our Lord Catholic Church, 1900 Wellesley Ave., St. Paul.

Fellowship will follow Mass, downstairs in Steiner Hall. Grandparents, siblings, other family members and friends are also welcome.

Parents who have not yet had the opportunity to formally commemorate their child’s life are encouraged to come early to sign their baby’s name in the Book of Life. Families will also have the opportunity to donate a “memory box” to St. Joseph’s/St. John’s Hospitals in memory of their baby.

Mass is sponsored by God’s Children, an apostolate of the archdiocesan Office of Marriage, Family and Life.
