Spiritual Care oversees the Share support group for parents who have experienced the death of a baby during pregnancy, at birth or in early infancy.
Share is a support group in which healing is slowly and gently promoted. Parents gain insight and understanding, vent their feelings in an accepting atmosphere and reach out to the newly bereaved. Individuals may express their religious feelings, attitudes, or experiences in group discussions; however, Share is non-denominational. What is important is an acceptance of each individual as he/she is.
The group meets the 2nd Monday of each month at 7:00 p.m. at HSHS St. Mary's Hospital. For more information, call 217-464-2045.
