It’s always sad when a loved one is taken away from the world too soon. Losing a child is the greatest pain any parent could suffer.
Despite no longer having an earthly presence, today in Forest Lake the young ones ages can be remembered eternally at the Children’s Memorial Healing Garden.
After St. Peter’s Catholic Church traditional mass at Calvary Cemetery on Memorial Day, a special ceremony was held for parishioners and the public to witness the blessing of the garden.
Within the sacred grounds, there is now a place where families can grieve the painful loss of a child to miscarriage, stillborn and abortion. They can receive comfort from the Lord and feel at peace knowing the child is safe in the arms of Jesus Christ.
Spearheaded by Angela Brand, it was nearly four years ago when she and other like-minded friends at St. Peter’s began discussing the idea of a memorial garden open to all denominations at the cemetery owned by the church.
If you’d like more information or paperwork to place a name at the memorial, contact St. Peter’s at (651) 982-2200 or Brand at 982-9053
