St. Luke’s Hospital is holding it’s annual Remembrance Service for babies who have died by miscarriage or stillbirth. It is taking place in St. Fiachra’s Church, Loughboy, Kilkenny on Tuesday, April 17 at 7.30pm. The service will give all of us an opportunity to remember over 2,000 babies who are born by miscarriage or stillbirth each year. The staff at St. Luke’s Hospital recognise how traumatic it is for any family to have a baby by miscarriage or stillbirth and we wish to acknowledge this by holding this service. The Service will be facilitated by the hospital’s two chaplains.
Everybody who may be affected, no matter how long ago, to come along is invited to come along. Children are especially welcome. There will be refreshments served in the Parish Hall afterwards.
This Service is being organised as part of the Hospital’s commitment to improving End-of-Life care for patients and their families.
