Terry Whiteley asks:

I would like to know if anyone is recognizing and putting an event on for the National Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Day, Saturday October 15th, 2016.

 Wave of Light

Everyone is asked to light a candle at 7 pm and let it burn for one hour. There will be continuous light around the world to remember the little ones that have lost their lives so young.

 In our community our city is lighting up large buildings in their honor. We at Catholic Cemeteries are celebrating a mass with our Bishop, and lighting up our cemetery with many candles in our children’s section and throughout the cemetery to honor these infants.

 I look forward to your reply.
