Parishoner starts ball rolling on memorial for unborn in Londonderry
Members of St. Jude's Parish in Londonderry are raising funds to build a memorial garden honoring the unborn on the church grounds this fall. The memorial, as depicted in this conceptual illustration with plants and shrubs labeled, will honor the memory of infants lost to miscarriage, stillbirth and abortion. (COURTESY)
After learning that the little garden had been planted in remembrance of infants lost to miscarriage, stillbirth or abortion, Renfer was touched by the poignant gesture.
After getting the go-ahead from church pastor, the Rev. Robert Couto, Renfer, who serves with the Bishop Newman Council 6949 Knights of Columbus of St. Jude Parish, began developing a plan.
The centerpiece of the re-landscaped garden will be a specially designed granite monument, with a carving of Jesus embracing a small child.
Donations are currently being accepted to help complete the project, he noted, while any additional funds needed will come from the Knights’ previous fund-raising efforts.
