Saying Goodbye Service

Saturday 15th July at 3.00 pm.

Derby Cathedral will once again host a Saying Goodbye service, for anyone who has miscarried or lost a baby or child, on Saturday 15th July at 3.00 pm. The service is completely free to attend. It offers an opportunity to remember and pray, and also include secular music and poetry.

Saying Goodbye services are run by the Mariposa Trust, a charity for people who have experienced child bereavement. They are for women and men who have suffered the loss of a baby, and for their families and friends, whether the loss is recent or in the past. All are welcome, regardless of the type of loss they have experienced. If you need to say goodbye to a baby or to grieve, or you want to come along with a friend who needs to say goodbye, you are welcome at any of the services. The service offers a welcoming space and will give you the opportunity to stand with other people ‘who know’ the pain of losing a child, and publicly acknowledge and remember your lost children. Come and rejoice in your baby’s life, grieve, remember and Say Goodbye.
