Heartprints Ministry

Heartprints

The Heartprints Ministry provides support to families who are grieving the loss of their baby during pregnancy, at birth or shortly after birth.

One aspect of the program is a monthly Heartprints parents’ meeting available to you no matter where you are in your grief and no matter how long it has been since your loss.  You may choose to talk or just listen.  We routinely work through books and Bible studies that apply to our losses.  We typically meet the last Tuesday of each month from 7:00-8:30 pm in the Parish Life Center with the exception of November and December where we meet earlier due to the holidays.

Another branch of the ministry is providing informational packets that are available in the parish library (located down the hall from the main church office).  There are packets for women and men who have been affected by abortion as well as a packet for those who have experienced a miscarriage, stillbirth, or early infant death.  These packets contain information regarding recommended books, Bible studies, support groups, counseling, and comforting music, poems, and rituals.  We pray that this information will be used by people who have had these experiences as well as grandparents, friends, co-workers, and other relatives of those who have suffered these painful losses.

We are also available to provide one-on-one support.  Please contact Kristy McNamee at 531-5603 or kristymcnamee@yahoo.com with any questions.
