Annual Service of Remembrance

Sunday 12th November 2017 at 3pm

St Theresa's Church, Donore Avenue, Dublin 8

Our Service of Remembrance is a very special occasion and a chance to share an experience with others who have suffered the loss of a child. It is a time to remember and if possible come to terms with our own personal loss.It is also a time to recognise that for a time, however short; we had the privilege of sharing a relationship with our child. This little life had a meaning and it is necessary for us to give attention to this existence. We may not always understand the “why” but for those of us who have been able to move on, I believe that our lives have been enriched by this painful but hugely significant time of our life.

We extend a very warm welcome to you all and would suggest that you make a note of this date inyour diary. Refreshments will be available afterwards in the church to give people the opportunity to have a chat with others attending the service. Our Book of Remembrance will also be available on the day if you wish to make an entry. We hope to see you there.
