Book of Life

Have you or a family member experienced the grief and pain of conceiving, then losing a child before or at birth?

Whether this was recently, or decades ago, we invite you to join us for this year’s Mass of Remembrance for Families on Tues 11th October at 7.30pm at Christ the King Parish.

This annual Liturgy, since 2007, is offered for all children who have died before being Baptised, and for all families to remember, love and heal in the knowledge that “your child is alive and living in the Lord.”- Pope John Paul II.  

After the Mass each family will have an opportunity to inscribe the name of their little one in the Book of Life. This special, lovingly handcrafted memorial book is housed in our peaceful Chapel of the Innocents at the John Paul II Centre for Life. Anyone is welcome to come and spend time in reflection there, or in our Children’s Garden of Remembrance.

If you need someone to talk to about your loss, or if there is some other way in which we can help you, please let us know.  Call us at the John Paul II Centre for Life, 88 Idris Rd. Ph 351 3227.
