Wave of Light - Global Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Event
Tuesday October 15, 6:30 - 8:00 PM Next Step PRC Memorial Garden
902 D Avenue, La Grande - enter through the 3rd Street gate (next to the driveway)
October 15th is Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Day. Next Step PRC invites all those who have experienced or been affected by reproductive or infant loss to participate in our first annual Wave of Light event. The Wave of Light Event is recognized internationally; at 7:00 PM in each region’s respective time zone individuals light candles for one hour in remembrance of those lost. This creates a global “wave of light.”
At 7:00 PM PT in Next Step’s Memorial Garden we will be lighting candles to remember those who have been lost to miscarriage, stillbirth, abortion, SIDs, or newborn death. Whether you’re a parent, grandparent, sibling, aunt, uncle, cousin, friend - if you’ve experienced reproductive or infant loss we invite you to bring a candle and come heal with us. Join us in our Memorial Garden for an hour of reflection and remembrance.
Finger foods and beverages will be provided. We recommend bringing jar candles, as we will be outside. We also respectfully ask that young children not attend, as it can be disruptive and painful for newly bereaved individuals. If you have any questions, please call our office at (541) 963-6918.
