Grief over the loss of a child is profound and long-lasting. On Saturday, 04October, at the 4:30pm Mass, we will remember babies and children lost, allowing our community to grieve with and support our families who have lost a child. All who have lost children of any age as well as anyone who wishes to support these families are encouraged to join us for Mass and a reception afterwards.
If you have suffered the loss of a child, please come to the narthex (lobby) ten minutes before Mass begins to mark a carnation in remembrance.
Our Elizabeth Ministry is sponsoring this event. For more information, call Michelle Anfang at 301.874.3858 or Patrice Thomas at 301.874.5587.
I will never forget you. I have inscribed your name on the palms of my hands. ~Isaiah 49:15-16
