March 4 talk to address supporting those who have experienced miscarriage, stillbirth, or infant death
LINCOLN (SNR) – Sandy Danek, program coordinator and facilitator of the diocesan grief program Healing Hearts will speak for the Lincoln MOMs group March 4 at the John XXIII Diocesan Center, 3700 Sheridan Blvd., Lincoln.
Healing Hearts is a ministry of the diocesan Office of Family Life. Danek will speak for those who have lost a baby through miscarriage, stillbirth, or infant death, but she will also speak for those who would like to support someone else who has suffered this loss, and perhaps they don’t know what to say.
Lincoln Mothers on a Mission “MOMs” is designed to serve Catholic mothers within a community that understands the many roles of a mother’s life. MOMs works to serve as a source of spiritual and emotional nourishment, foster supportive friendships, and instill joy as members strive to live their vocations to the fullest and seek to build upon a mother’s personal relationship with the all-loving and merciful God.
All mothers in the Lincoln area are invited to the group’s meetings the first Saturday of each month to listen to a speaker, engage in small group discussions and socialize. Coffee, snacks and childcare are provided with an online sign-up. A recommended free-will donation of $5 for each meeting is suggested.
“If you haven’t had a chance to come to a meeting yet,” member Hanna Christensen said, “it’s not too late to join! Please come and bring a friend.”
