PLEASE SHARE THIS WITH YOUR CHURCH AND FRIENDS
The Angel of Hope Statue is for every parent who has lost a child of any age starting at conception.
It is a place to provide comfort, healing and also a way of remembering each child so they are never forgotten. Engraved on the right wing is HOPE and her arms are reaching out to welcome all who comes to her.
Each year on December 6th at 7:00pm, a candlelight memorial service is held at the Angel of Hope statue in Westgate Park .
All are welcome to attend in memory of their beloved child/children. A candle and a white flower will be provided to those who attend.
In addition to representing hope to all parents who have endured the death of a child, The Angel Of Hope Statue serves as a gravesite for parents that don’t have one. It is a symbol of hope, a place to reflect, a place of healing and a special place for people to grieve.
The Angel is a symbol that will represent and honor our children.
Our children will live in our hearts and lives forever. Remember that our children live through us; and their lives can touch many others through us. Parents need to feel hope that they will survive and move on, and that their children will never be forgotten
If you know of a family who has lost a child please tell them about the Angel Of Hope Statue and invite them to attend the candlelight vigil on December 6th at 7pm
