Baby Loss Awareness
To remember bereaved parents, their families and friends
To commemorate the lives of babies who died during pregnancy, at or soon after birth and in infancy.

Our altar is dedicated to baby loss awareness remembering bereaved parents, their families and friends, to commemorate the lives of babies who died during pregnancy, at or soon after birth and in infancy.
Candles are available at the altar:
"Lighting a candle is a prayer
When we are gone it stays alight,
Kindling in the hearts and minds of others
The prayer we have already offered,
For those who have died,
And for those who are grieving.
Having been in contact with a number of organisations you will find lots of material on the altar in the form of leaflets and contact information to signpost you, and it highlights bereavement support and services available for anyone affected by the death of a baby at any stage.
THE MISCARRIAGE ASSOCIATION (www.themiscarriageassociation.org.uk)
Miscarriage is the most common kind of pregnancy loss, affecting around one in four pregnancies.
SANDS (Stillborn and Neonatal Death) (www.sands.org.uk)
SANDS supports anyone who has been affected by the death of a baby before, during or shortly after birth.

the catenian association
The Catenians are an association of Catholic laymen who are committed to their Faith, their families, to those in need and to each other. Their primary purpose is to establish a network of friends, which enhances their family life,
strengthens their Faith and sustains them in difficult times.
They support each other, the Catholic Church, young people
and those in need.
Their friendships are developed through meeting together
locally once a month and enjoying a varied programme
of social events together with their families and the
widows of Members.
The Local Circle is Ascot & Sunningdale and meets on the
first Monday of the month at the Berystede Hotel, Ascot.
Under Coronavirus restrictions, the meetings are suspended, and are being held via Zoom.
The Church of the Sacred Heart is served by the Verona Fathers (Comboni Missionaries) within the Diocese of Arundel and Brighton. Our Church offers the liturgical, sacramental and pastoral services that a Catholic might expect.
There is a Pastoral Team responsible for the organization of all the aspects of the Church in different ministries.
We are fortunate enough to be able to provide good parking facilities; a hall and kitchen which are available for church-related activities; meeting rooms; toilets; access for the disabled; and a loop system for those with hearing difficulties.
The main house is home to a Community of Verona Fathers, one of whom, Fr. Julio Ocaña, is charged with the pastoral care of all who attend Church here.
