Mass of Remembrance and Healing for Pregnancy and Infant Loss

Nov. 13, 2017
The Pro Life Office and Project Rachel will sponsor a Mass of Remembrance and Healing for Pregnancy and Infant Loss. A special invitation is extended to parents, grandparents and siblings who grieve the death of children as a result of miscarriage, stillbirth, abortion or early infant death. These losses may be recent or extend over many years. The Mass  will take place on November 13th at 7:30 p.m. at St. Patrick’s Church in Natick (44 East Central Street, Rt. 135). The guest homilist will be Rev. J. Bryan Hehir, Secretary for Health & Social Services of the Archdiocese of Boston. A light reception and opportunity for Sacramental Reconciliation (Confession) will also be available after Mass. For more information, contact Project Rachel at 508.651.3100 or
