Journey Memorial Service at Infirmary

The Perinatal Bereavement Program held the annual Journey Memorial Service Sunday, Nov. 1 at CHI St. Vincent Infirmary.  The event brings together parents, family members and friends who have experienced miscarriage, stillbirth or newborn death.

Historically, these loses are seldom discussed or even acknowledged.  The service provides support for families who are grieving and who can sometimes feel isolated in their grief.

An ornament is placed on a Christmas tree in honor of each child.
