    Hi! I read your blog from time to time as my husband and I live in DSM. We’re currently in Dallas at the NACFLM conference (my husband is the director of the marriage and family life office for the Diocese of Des Moines) and I ran into a lady from the Archdiocese of Atlanta who recently started a miscarriage ministry called Embrace. Maybe you’ve already heard of this? Last fall they had a remembrance walk and in May had a remembrance Mass that was celebrated by the archbishop. As each couple entered the church, they were encouraged to write down the name of their child (if they hadn’t named their baby then they just wrote Baby Last Name) and then all of the names were read during the Mass. Here is their website: http://www.embracefamilies.com/.

    • Hi Kara! Thanks for dropping by and sharing this information with us! Joel and I both feel called to help get a Memorial Mass established for our diocese. I love the example you have shared here. THANK YOU! In general, Joel and I simply need to sit down with you and Adam and get to know each other better. We will certainly be in touch. Thanks again for dropping by.

Join the conversation!
