Grieving mother heartbroken over broken urn

Recently, a distraught young woman came to Catholic Charities for food and clothing assistance. When she shared her story, it was revealed that her child died shortly after birth. The infant’s remains were cremated and placed in an urn gifted to her from the hospital. Later, the child’s father became angry and damaged the urn. When the woman shared this story and the hurt could be seen in her eyes, Catholic Charities was pleased to be able to supply her with a brand new vessel to hold the remains of her beloved child. We thank all those who support Catholic Charities as we strive to be Christ’s merciful love to those who suffer. Your donations, time, and prayers are what help us provide way more love, hope, and help to our clients when they are in need. Our prayers go out to this young woman and all grieving parents.
