Our mission is to embrace families who have lost a child through miscarriage, stillbirth, or infant death. Embrace is surrounding these families with help and support. Embrace is an act of helping these families embrace the loss of their child through acknowledgement and respect while continuing on with life. Embrace provides comfort, support and education. We hold three main events each year, a Memorial Mass in May, the walk in October, and Christmas Ornament Making in December.
