RTS Bereavement Services sets candlelight service

Agnesian HealthCare's RTS Bereavement Services has scheduled its annual holiday candlelight memorial service for families in Fond du Lac, Waupun and surrounding communities who have experienced the loss of a child of any age.

The service, scheduled at the St. Agnes Chapel, 430 E. Division St., Fond du Lac, will begin at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Dec. 12, according to an Agnesian press release.

The service is designed to celebrate and remember these children during this festive season. Each family will receive a candle to take home, as well as the opportunity to say their child's name while lighting their candle.

Refreshments will be served following the service.

Sponsored by Agnesian HealthCare's Spiritual Care Services, RTS Bereavement Services is a free self-help support group for parents who have lost a baby through miscarriage, ectopic pregnancy, stillbirth or newborn death.
