Rite of Naming & Commending Children Mass
On Saturday, February 10th, at the 8:00 A.M. Mass, we will celebrate the Rite of Naming & Commendation of children who died before birth or were stillborn.
If you have lost a child at birth or before he or she was born for any reason (including abortion) and would like to participate in the Rite of Naming & Commendation, please RSVP by Monday, February 5th, to Jane Brown, OPA at 636-441-0055 ext. 113 with the name you have chosen for your baby.
This is a beautiful & meaningful way to honor your child & help you & your family to begin the healing process. The loss of your baby could be recent or years ago. You will receive a certificate with the name you have chosen for your baby.
A gathering will be held & light refreshments will be served in the St. Joseph Room following Mass. All are invited to attend.
