Wave of Light: homenaje a la pérdida del embarazo y el bebé

Join us to commemorate child loss through miscarriage, stillbirth or infant death as part of the global Wave of Light.

15 de octubre de 2022
De 5 a 7 p.m.

Norton Women’s & Children’s Hospital
4001 Dutchman’s Lane
Louisville, Kentucky

Healing garden in front of the hospital  

Wave of Light is observed around the world each year to remember pregnancy and infant loss. The Norton Healthcare Pastoral Care team, in partnership with the We Remember Committee and March of Dimes, will host a candle-lighting ceremony to remember precious little ones we hold in our hearts.

The Wave of Light event is open to anyone who has been affected by loss of a pregnancy or infant. The ceremony will feature guest speakers sharing their experience with child loss, opportunities for prayer or reflection, and information on additional support.

The event will conclude with the lighting of the candles. As you light your candle, we encourage you to speak the name of the child you’re honoring, so that their memory may live on in our hearts.

This event is made possible with support from March of Dimes.
