Our mission is to celebrate the lives of all children and that includes children no longer with us. One of the ways we do that is by coming alongside and supporting families who have lost a child. Our annual Day of Remembrance is a special time of remembering our children no longer with us. Often one of the greatest fears for a family who has lost a child is that their child will be forgotten. The ceremony includes a roll call of the children represented, with each name spoken out loud, songs and brief words about grief and concludes with a live butterfly release. Each family is given a handmade personalized lace angel with their child’s name as a keepsake of the day. T-shirts can also be pre-ordered that include a list of the children represented on the back.
If you would like to celebrate the life of a child, we invite you to join us on the 4th Saturday in October at 10:30 am. Pre-registration is required to have your child’s name included in the program. Please check back closer to the event to register your child.
