Parents who lose a child before birth often mourn the ability to physically embrace that child. If you have experienced such a loss, know that you are not alone. The Catholic family of western Kentucky embraces you as a supportive community during this time of grief, whether you experienced your loss many years ago or very recently. We encourage families to find ways to remember the children they have lost through miscarriage or stillbirth.
Embrace Ministry is a community of parents who have gone through the process already and are here to help. It is our hope and prayer that this brochure brings you the comfort of knowing you are not alone. Whether you experienced a miscarriage early in your pregnancy or full term; whether if was recently or years ago; whether it was you or someone in your family; we are here for you. To speak to someone who knows the pain you are going through contact the Office of Marriage and Family Life at (270) 683-1545 or you may email firstname.lastname@example.org
2018-2019 DISCIPLES RESPONSE FUND
The 2018-2019 Disciples Response Fund campaign has begun with a mailing to all registered parishioners from Bishop Medley. All are asked to give generously in support of the important items funded by your contributions. Support of the work of our Diocese is important. There are many things that even the largest parishes cannot do on their own. For example, the Disciples Response Fund puts money into an endowment for the care of retired priests. Also, the fund assists with the expenses for the education of our seminarians and provides operating income and scholarship funds for the Gasper River Catholic Youth Camp. Your gift to the 2018-2019 DRF wil make it possible for us to accompany others on their journey of faith. Our 2018-2019 target is $11,655.63
