CHRISTUS St. Michael to Host “A Life to Remember” May 12

CHRISTUS St. Michael to Host “A Life to Remember” May 12

TEXARKANA – On Saturday May 12, CHRISTUS ST. Michael Health System will host A Life to Remember, an event honoring and comforting mothers who have experienced the unimaginable loss of an infant.

“When a mother experiences the loss of a baby, she faces a journey where hope and healing are needed,” said Antoinette Peters, Chaplain at CHRISTUS St. Michael Hospital – Texarkana. “In honor of these mothers, we will gather to remember the lives of the babies who were loved and died in the early weeks and months of their precious lives.”

The ceremony at the center of the Life to Remember event is dedicated to babies who die each year through pregnancy loss, stillbirth or newborn death. The event is open to all mothers, not only CHRISTUS St. Michael patients. All family members and friends are welcome to attend.

“On Mother’s Day weekend, it can be tough for these women,” said Ms. Peters. “They may not be recognized like other women, but they are mothers. With this event, we seek to walk with them on their journey and offer comfort and support.”

This marks the fifth year for A Life to Remember. The event is set for Saturday May 12, at 10:30am in the CHRISTUS St. Michael Serenity Garden.
