EMBER OF HOPE MINISTRY

Our mission is to provide support and spark HOPE and healing in families as they navigate through their grief journey caused by the loss of a pregnancy or infant loss.

We hold a monthly meeting open to grieving parents and family members seeking peer support. See our Facebook group, Ember of Hope, for meeting details or call the parish office at (920) 788-9061. Our Facebook group is also a place to connect with others who have suffered the loss of a child.

Contact us if you or anyone you know has experienced the loss of a child so we can reach out with prayer and offer support. We can also deliver a care package to a family going through a loss.

We are currently in the process of constructing a Memorial Garden in the St. John Cemetery. Click here for our informational brochure. Click here to purchase a paver stone for the Memorial Garden in memory of your baby.

The Memorial Garden & Burial Site Dedication and the first Burial Service was held on October 16, 2022 at the Memorial Garden in the St. John Cemetery. Please stay tuned for when the next burial service will occur.
