Share of Western Wisconsin, a pregnancy and infant loss group coordinated by HSHS Sacred Heart and St. Joseph’s hospitals, is hosting a special Christmastime memorial service for families and friends who have experienced a loss due to miscarriage, stillbirth, ectopic pregnancy, early infant death or SIDS in the past year.

This service will take place Sunday, Dec. 8 at 7 p.m. in the Chapel at HSHS Sacred Heart Hospital, 900 West Clairemont Ave. Families and friends throughout western Wisconsin are welcome to attend.

“The holidays are a particularly difficult time of year for those grieving the loss of a baby,” said Eric Butters, manager of Spiritual Care and Mission Integration at HSHS Sacred Heart and St. Joseph’s hospitals. “Families are encouraged to bring a special Christmas ornament from home and hang it in on the tree in our Chapel during the service,” he added. The Christmas tree will remain in the hospital’s Chapel throughout the season.

The event is free and registration is not required. For more information, contact Spiritual Care Services at HSHS Sacred Heart and St. Joseph’s hospitals at 715-717-6174.
