   On Sunday, November 5, 2017 all families and individuals are welcome to attend this Mass at the Blanchette Catholic Center in Crest Hill.  This beautiful liturgy will remember babies who have been lost through miscarriage, stillbirth, infant death, other pregnancy losses or early childhood death.  At 2:00 p.m., a special tree blessing ceremony for family members to commemorate these babies will precede the mass.  Family members may wish to arrive at 1:30 pm to sign in and to gather in the chapel.   A reception with light refreshments will be served immediately following. To register online, go to http://conta.cc/2f4CvXS  or call 815-838-5334 by November 1. If you are not able to attend but would like your baby remembered, please call us.
