Miscarriage Awareness

The Miscarriage Awareness Committee is funded by the Bishop’s Annual Appeal.

Women, couples, families suffer when a baby dies by miscarriage. Often those suffering feel isolated because not many people know of the loss. Great comfort comes when someone says "we had a miscarriage, we are so sorry for your loss".

A miscarriage is defined as "the spontaneous loss of a fetus before the 20th week of pregnancy". This is a loss of life. The parents already love this child and have hopes and dreams for this baby.

Statistics say 25% of pregnancies end in miscarriage. That means there are families around us, in our community mourning the loss of a child.

We encourage dialogue about miscarriage and work for awareness and education.

We pray for those who mourn especially those who feel alone in their grief.
