VIGIL OF REMEMBRANCE – Tuesday, October 15, 2013
Around the world October 15th is observed every year as Pregnancy
and Infant Loss Awareness Day.
In support of Greater Victoria moms, dads and families whose lives have been touched by this tragic form of loss this, or any, year Royal Oak Burial Park will be hosting a Vigil of Remembrance at
Sequoia Gardens Memorial, 4665 Falaise Drive (next to the Burial Park)
on Tuesday, October 15th at 7:00 p.m.
Anyone who has been affected by Pregnancy or Infant Loss
and the general public are welcome to attend this event.
Royal Oak Burial Park is proud of our new project, Little Spirits Garden inconjunction with the Saanich Legacy Foundation.
The Little Spirits Garden will be located at one of the highest points of land in the Burial Park. A wooded grove with towering trees, the site and its many features take advantage of a scenic vista and will also give privacy to families and visitors at the site.
A simple pavilion will shelter parents and families who wish to conduct memorial ceremonies in remembrance of the loss of a baby. If cremation has taken place, the garden will have designated areas to scatter cremated remains at the site or in a communal ossuary.
The Board of Cemetery Trustees of Greater Victoria has contributed $50,000 to developing the plan for the ‘Little Spirits Garden’. The board has partnered with the Saanich Legacy Foundation to raise the remaining $275,000 needed to complete the project.
