Remembrance service for families who have experienced the death of a child

By Esther Hayden

St Gabriel's Ward at Wexford General Hospital's Paediatric Unit is holding its first Service of Remembrance for families who have experienced the death of an infant or child.

This service will take place on Saturday, March 21 at 3pm in Church of the Annunciation, Clonard, Wexford. All parents/families and children are warmly invited to attend this special service along with staff of Wexford General Hospital who have cared for children/infants who have died.

Hilda Stafford, Clinical Nurse Manager, St Gabriel's Ward, said: 'This new Service of Remembrance provides an opportunity for the hospital community to come together with parents and families to remember their child, to offer support and to comfort one another at what we hope will be a very gentle and reflective ceremony. There will be an opportunity to light a candle in memory of their child.
