Garden of Angels
In the late 1990’s, Mt. Carmel cemetery established our Garden of Angels for all God’s “little” children who have died. This is a peaceful resting place for Infants and unborn children with no fee’s or questions asked. We have children from throughout the region from conception to birth. These smallest angels are lovingly cared for in our Garden of Angels regardless of religious denomination or background. This is a quiet, reflective place to remember the unborn – it’s a haven to assist the healing process following the loss of an unborn child. A peaceful place of prayer and a source of comfort. Some of the babies have names on granite pavers. A white cross marks the spot of each life lost.
While the passing of a loved one is always a difficult time, the death of an unborn child or infant can be devastating to a family. The Catholic church teaches that life begins at conception and all children, regardless of their stage of development, are gifts from God and welcome at Mt. Carmel.
We have over 500 in our Garden of Angels to date and there simply is not enough space to continue. We need your help!
Our Garden of Angels Project is expanding the garden and will be completed by the end of 2019, but even after completion, we will need your help for upkeep of the Garden.
The Garden of Angels Project is made possible with the generous financial support of Lourdes Hospital and Baptist Health of Paducah, as well as other area organizations, who are listed on our supporters wall at the Garden.
Please prayerfully consider how you can help support our efforts. When you decide to be a part of our Garden of Angels, print out the pledge card below and return it to Mt. Carmel Cemetery with your gift.
