On Saturday May 12, CHRISTUS ST. Michael Health System will host A Life to Remember, an event
honoring and comforting mothers who have experienced the unimaginable loss of an infant.



“When a mother experiences the loss of a baby, she faces a journey where hope and healing 
are needed,” said Antoinette Peters, Chaplain at CHRISTUS St. Michael Hospital - Texarkana. 
“In honor of these mothers, we will gather to remember the lives of the babies who were 
loved and died in the early weeks and months of their precious lives.”



The ceremony at the center of the Life to Remember event is dedicated to babies who die 
each year through pregnancy loss, stillbirth or newborn death. The event is open to all 
mothers, not only CHRISTUS St. Michael patients. All family members and friends 
are welcome to attend.



“On Mother’s Day weekend, it can be tough for these women,” said Ms. Peters. “They may 
not be recognized like other women, but they are mothers. With this event, we seek to 
walk with them on their journey and offer comfort and support.”



This marks the fifth year for A Life to Remember. The event is set for Saturday 
May 12, at 10:30am in the CHRISTUS St. Michael Serenity Garden.
