Mass for Mothers Who Have Lost a Child

madonna (2)

“Can the human heart refrain, from partaking in her pain, of that Mother’s pain untold?”

Holy Trinity will celebrate a Mass for mothers who have lost or buried a child of any age on Tuesday, 16 May 2017 at 6:30pm.

In conjunction with the month of the Blessed Mother and secular Mothers’ Day, Holy Trinity will hold a special evening Mass with a specific focus on mothers who have buried or lost a child at any age.  The focus on the Mass will be to pray for the repose of the souls of the children who have passed, but also to rejoice in the gift of motherhood, even in the face of sadness and loss.

Mothers will have the opportunity to pray for their children and light a candle at the altar to honor the life of their child.  Fathers and other family members are of course welcome to attend, as well as the wider community.
