The loss of a child is one of the most difficult things to go through in life. Often people feel alone and isolated in their grief. Elizabeth Ministries wants you to know you are not alone. Elizabeth Ministries is a Catholic ministry for women during the child bearing years. The ministry offers support to mothers who have suffered the loss of their child due to ectopic pregnancy, miscarriage, stillbirth or infant death. This ministry is a safe and confidential place to ask for prayers and support. There are currently two Elizabeth Ministry groups in the metro area offering the following:
Elizabeth Ministry group of St. Wenceslaus Parish.
