Remembering Together – a service for those who have lost a child or baby...
‘Remembering Together’ is a special service which will be held at St Edmundsbury Cathedral, Bury St Edmunds on Saturday 20 September at 3.00 pm. The service is open to all who have lost babies and children, sons and daughters, whatever their age and whatever the cause. A Crèche will be available.
This is the second time that this service has been held at the Cathedral and following feedback last year, it was felt appropriate to hold an annual service. Canon David Crawley, Cathedral Chaplain, who is one of the organisers of the service comments, ‘By offering this time to be together with others who have suffered a similar loss, we hope to provide support and comfort while acknowledging that the sense of bereavement may continue, for some, for the rest of their lives.’
Canon Crawley is working alongside health professionals and other clergy in the town in response to an awareness that people often try to deal with these sorts of issues on their own, when in fact there are many ways to gain support and help.
For further information about the service, please contact Canon Crawley at the Cathedral on 01284 748720 or email him on firstname.lastname@example.org
