Remembrance of Life
Pregnancy and Newborn Loss
In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the spiritual care team at Methodist has made the difficult but necessary decision to continue to host the annual Remembrance of Life memorial service in a virtual format. All those who have experienced pregnancy or newborn loss are invited to participate in our online service, as well as honor your little loved one in a butterfly garden at one of our hospital locations.
In recognition of Pregnancy and Infant Loss Day of Remembrance, a brief virtual ceremony of hope and remembrance will be shared on this page on October 15. You are invited to view this service at a time convenient to you and your family.
Honor the life of your little loved one in one of our memorial butterfly gardens, located outside the entrances at:
Butterflies for submissions received by Oct. 6 will be placed in the butterfly garden of your choosing on October 8. Submissions received Oct. 6-20 will be added to the garden within 2 business days. All butterflies will remain in the garden until Oct. 24.
To participate, please submit your baby’s name(s) and, if you choose, a brief message via our secure online form by October 20. Your names and message will be attached to a butterfly ornament and placed at the hospital garden of your choosing.
