Baby Loss Matters- Our parish is participating in Baby Loss Matters, an initiative by the national prolife Charity Life, to create memorial spaces in churches across the country for those lost before, during or shortly after birth for any reason.  Our memorial space, now set up, includes prayer cards, as well as details of support services. Both memorial and resources are for anyone who wishes to use them.  Whether you are personally affected or not, please visit the memorial and pray for those who are.

This weekend we will be also be holding a Collection for Life for their vital services, giving practical and emotional support to women in crisis pregnancies and suffering after the loss of a baby.
