Healing Service for the Loss of a Child

There are very few things in life as painful or as challenging as the loss of a child.  Often, there are no words for our grief.

Yet, Christ always calls us towards himself that we might not bear our grief alone.  He wishes to bring us comfort and to begin the process of healing.

That Family and Respect Life Office of the Archdiocese of Cincinnati enthusiastically supports parish efforts to promote healing of all kinds of child-loss, both those children lost within the womb and older children.  If you are interested in hosting a Healing Service for mothers and fathers who are grieving the loss of a child, we have the following resources to support your efforts.
