Every year at Children’s Hospital we take time to remember those we have lost
The most difficult experience in life is to lose a child. Whether to injury or to illness, the death of a child is the universe out of order.
Every year at Children’s Hospital, we gather in friendship as parents, grandparents, caregivers and others for a non-denominational memorial service to remember – to call the names of the children we have lost, to light a candle in remembrance, to reflect among those who share the bond of common experience in a service celebrating the children who are remembered with love.
This year’s Memorial Service is being held on Saturday, May 5. Invitations will be mailed to families who have had a child die in the last two years by the end of March.
For more information phone (612-813-7216) or email [email protected].
