Remembrance Walk

October is Pregnancy & Infant Loss month. Join us in October 2021 for the 7th annual Remembrance Walk in honor and memory of our babies and children. Due to the ongoing public health situation and Providence’s current policy about group gatherings at healthcare facilities, this year’s event will be held virtually.
