Memorial service set for miscarried babies

A burial service for babies that were miscarried from May through September 2012 will take place at 4 p.m. Thursday, Oct.18, at Calvary Cemetery in St. Cloud. This service provides parents and loved ones the opportunity to remember their babies through prayer, song and mementoes. The St. Cloud Hospital Family Birthing Center nurses and Spiritual Care chaplains will host the service.

St. Cloud Hospital has provided burials for miscarried babies since the Sisters of the Order of St. Benedict first founded the hospital in 1886. Burial services are offered twice each year, in May and October.

The burial service is sponsored by St. Cloud Hospital Spiritual Care and Family Birthing Center.
