CANCELLED Saying Goodbye Service

25 June, 2022 17:00 - 18:00

Unfortunately this service has had to be cancelled due to circumstances beyond our control. We hope to have a new date for later in the year.



When a baby is lost, whether during pregnancy, at birth or in infancy, it is a devastating experience for the parents and the extended family. Sadly for people that lose prior to 24-weeks gestation, services to commemorate their life that has been lost are seldom held, while for parents who lose later in pregnancy, at birth or in early years, the parents are usually in the depth of grief when a service is held. The Saying Goodbye services are the first international set of remembrance services, for people who have suffered the loss of a baby at any stage, and whether that be recently or decades ago, They provide a time and place to acknowledge and remember you’re your baby, while collectively ‘saying goodbye’. The services also welcome anyone grieving the fact that they have been unable to have children. The services are for people of any faith or no faith, are free to attend, no tickets need to be booked, and people are invited to bring family, friends and children with them. Held at cathedrals and similar venues across the globe, chosen for their beauty and grandeur; a wonderful tribute is created for all lost babies. Together we will stand and say ‘our children may have only been on this earth for days, weeks, months or years, but they were truly loved and, and will always be missed.’ For up to date service details, please see sayinggoodbye. The Mariposa Trust is a charity that runs the saying Goodbye services, and is supported by wonderful ambassadors including Professor Robert Winston, Nigella Lawson, Jools Oliver, Mary Nighingale, Kym Marsh, Caroline Quentin, Julie Etchingham and Lesley Regan.
