Children’s Minnesota to host holiday bereavement event

We understand that preparing for the holidays can be challenging. The Children’s Hospitals and Clinics of Minnesota Bereavement Advisory Team (BAT), along with Children’s Minnesota staff, is hosting “Grieving Through the Holidays,” an event to help you connect with other bereaved families who are preparing for the holidays, from 3-5 p.m. Nov. 1 at Children’s – Minneapolis, 2525 Chicago Ave. S. Children and grandparents are encouraged to attend this evening.

Please join us for a time to connect with other bereaved families. Adults and children will be able to participate in remembrance activities. The evening will end with a short candle-lighting service to honor children who have died, followed by appetizers and hot chocolate.

Age-appropriate activity groups will be offered for kids ages 4 and older. Childcare will be provided for kids ages 18 months to 3 years.

For questions about the event, please contact Bereavement Services at [email protected] or (612) 813-7216.

BAT is a group of bereaved parents whose children also were cared for within Children’s Hospitals and Clinics of Minnesota.
