Memorial Mass of Angels

Sorry about the late notice, but here's an important FYI-

Our parish's Elizabeth Ministry is holding its annual Memorial Mass of Angels on Tues. April, 22nd at 7pm. I wanted to make sure the word got out to people who might find peace and healing in this Mass.

This is open to anyone (you need not be Catholic to attend) who has been touched by the loss of a child through miscarriage, stillbirth, abortion, SIDS, and infant or child death. (*In cases of miscarriage, there is an eloquently written prayer and blessing for parents over at EWTN*) A reception will follow. All friends and family are invited to share in the support and fellowship of these loved ones.

Please forward this invitation to anyone whom you think might be interested.

For those who would like to have a candle lighted in their child's name, but are unable to attend, please feel free to email me at patjrsmom at yahoo dot com
with the name of the child and the date on which he or she was born into eternity. Today is the last day for submitting information.

Got it. I'll be lighting several candles for all those precious babies waiting for us in heaven.

God Bless,

Jane,
I checked the site at EWTN. I didn't know that existed until now. I thank you for this wonderful post!

Thank you, Jane. I am in the phase of setting up my own blog and perused blogs at Catholic Moms online. I applaud your efforts to grow your family through adoption. We are on the fence deciding - we have four children born to us. I did have the miscarriage in June '01 and still very saddened by that event. I have accepted it and thought I moved on. But I did cry when I read your post and have had a heavy heart since yesterday thinking about that baby. Thank you for lighting a candle for us.

Laura,

Thank YOU for sharing your story. I know it's been several years, but I am sure it is still difficult to deal with. Know that you and your family will be in my prayers at the Mass of Angels on Tuesday. I am so humbled to be able to remember all those little ones gone before us.

God Bless,
Jane
