Service for bereaved families

by Jimmy Rhatigan

ST LUKE’S General Hospital holds its Annual 

Remembrance Ceremony on Tuesday, April 26 at 7.30pm in St Fiacre’s Church, Loughboy, Kilkenny City. 

The service is for families who have been bereaved by the death of a child during pregnancy, after birth or in childhood years. 

St Luke’s warmly invites anyone who has been bereaved recently or long ago.  

Parents and families hold their babies and children in loving memory and are never forgotten.  

This ceremony is a beautiful way for families and staff to reflect and remember them. 

During the service there will be an opportunity for families to light a candle in memory of their babies or children.  St Canice’s choir will be present. 

Refreshments will be served afterwards in the adjoining parish centre where there will be an opportunity to meet with staff from the Maternity, Special Care Baby and Paediatric Unit.
