Women’s Service of Loss, May 7

Butterflies flowersOn the Saturday evening before Mother’s Day, Los Altos United Methodist Church will offer a Women’s Service of Loss. This is a service for all those who have suffered the loss of a pregnancy or a child of any age. The death of a child, whether held by our bodies, in our arms, or already grown, is a loss that we forever carry. No matter the age or how recent the death, it may be healing and helpful to have a space to name and honor that loss among other women who are sisters in loss.

You are invited on Saturday, May 7, at 7:30 p.m. in the Sanctuary for an hour of holding our hearts gently as we acknowledge and honor this experience of motherhood. The Rev. Cate Noellert will lead the service. The church is located at 655 Magdalena Ave (cross street is Foothill Expressway; go here for maps and directions). For more information, call the church office at 650-948-1083.
