Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Month has begun. PAIL Remembrance Day is 10/15, and PAIL Remembrance Sunday is the Sunday after that, on 10/16 (although there is nothing wrong with doing it a different Sunday in October). Participation is simple:
1) Ask your church to place (or allow you to place) a bouquet of loose, long-stemmed yellow roses on the altar.
2) Ask for an announcement in the bulletin stating the flowers are in remembrance of babies who have died during pregnancy and early infancy and in honor of the families walking that road of loss. Such families are invited to take a rose home after the service.
3) Ask for a similar announcement to be made from the pulpit, especially the reminder that anyone who has experienced the loss of a baby in pregnancy or infancy may take a rose home after the service,
That is all. For more information, see our PAIL Remembrance Sunday page: http://www.naomiscircle.org/pail-sunday.html
