loss of child support group

I am really proud to share with you that a dear friend of mine is beginning a support group for women who have lost a child through miscarriage, stillbirth, or death.  The meetings are at St. Phil's in Peoria and the first one is this Monday, September 12th at 6:30pm.
 
I encourage you to come, no matter how recently or long ago you lost your child!  
 
They are also planning a healing retreat for October 22nd.
 
Below is the information from their Facebook page.  Please pass it on to anyone who may be interested in being involved in the future.
 
May the peace of Christ be with you all!
 
Have you, or has someone you know, experienced the miscarriage, stillbirth, or death of a child? We will be starting a monthly support group for women who have experienced these events in their lives. The group will meet in the Sacred Heart room at St. Philomena Catholic Church starting on September 12th from 6:30 - 8:00pm. Please tell anyone whom you think would like support in these areas.

*The Sacred Heart room is located under the rectory; enter the basement on the north side of the building.

The first annual healing retreat, also called "A Mother's Love," will be on October 22nd. More details to come...

  1. Wow! Thank you for posting this info. I'd love to attend, but I can't make it tomorrow or on the 10-22 date. Does the group have a regular meeting schedule?

  2. I don't know what the time difference is between us (I'm in the UK) but I will pray for the success of this group this evening.
