Calendar of Events

October 2012


Pregnancy and Infant 

Loss Remembrance

Oct. 18 | 6:30 p.m. – 8:00 p.m.


1306 Avenue A

Katy, TX 77493


This public awareness was created and set into motion in 1988 by then President Ronald Reagan. Within the United States of America this day set aside was to provide support to those who have experienced or know someone who has experienced a pregnancy or Infant loss. As the years have gone by this Day of Remembrance has faded with time, our own busyness and frankly awkward conversation.


We extend our hands of hope and hearts of prayer along with a very personal invitation to our first annual Day of Remembrance, Thursday October 18th 6:30pm.

We are committed to serve you and your families through this time of remembrance as we affirm and give credence to what was lost as it is found.
