Mother’s Day Flower Project:
Update: We are no longer holding the Mother’s Day Flower Project, as participation had dwindled. We encourage anyone to continue on your own at your individual cemeteries.
Each year, on the Saturday before Mother’s Day, we meet in the parking lot of Liberty Family Practice to distribute carnations for our members to deliver to local cemeteries. We try to place flowers on the graves of as many babies as possible, in time for their parents to find on Mother’s Day.
October Memorial Service:
Update: All meetings are now virtual via Zoom due to the pandemic. We will continue to hold a virtual memorial service on the second Tuesday in October at 7:30 pm. Anyone is encouraged to attend and speak about their babies or read a poem. We will light out Empty Arms candles and will have battery candles to ‘light’ for all attendees. You can also bring a candle of your own to light in your own home. Meeting link will be posted on the web page and on the private Facebook group page. In honor of Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Month, our annual memorial service takes the place of our regular meeting in October. We no longer meet at the St. Vincent chapel, but host the memorial service at our regular meeting location at Liberty Family Practice. All members are welcome to do a reading or speak about their babies. Reception following with plenty of snacks.
December Ornament Meeting:
Update: Our ornament mailing continues, though in person meetings are a thing of the past. Please email me at angela@mapsofmastery if you are a new member who would like to be added to our mailing list, or if your address has changed. At our December meeting, we will distribute our annual memorial ornament. Holiday treats to share are welcome.
