Host a Memorial Service in Your Town

You can be a very special part of the National Day of Remembrance for Aborted Children on Saturday, September 18 by hosting a memorial service at a gravesite in your community where aborted babies are buried. Volunteer leaders are needed at dozens of such sites across the country—see the list of gravesites of the aborted unborn to see where leaders are needed.

No burial place in your area? If there is no actual burial place of unborn children nearby, you can still take part by hosting a prayer service at any local memorial site dedicated to the unborn victims of abortion. There are hundreds of such sites all over the country, and chances are there’s one near you.

If you choose to host a National Day of Remembrance memorial service, you will be provided with numerous resources by the national organizing team, such as sample bulletin announcements, press release templates and a proposed program for your service.

Your memorial service will be one of scores taking place simultaneously all over the country to highlight the humanity of these poor unborn babies, mourn their loss and awaken the nation’s conscience to the injustice that has been done to them.

What’s Involved in Hosting a Memorial Service?

If you’re interested in hosting a memorial service during the next National Day of Remembrance for Aborted Children, you may wish to review the detailed instructions for local leaders. But in a nutshell, your job as local leader would involve:

  • Arranging to hold the memorial service with the authorities responsible for the gravesite or memorial site (such as church or cemetery staff)
  • Promoting the event in your community, especially in all the local churches;
  • Organizing the agenda for the memorial service;
  • Inviting the media to attend and report on the event; and
  • Documenting your memorial service with pictures and video.

Representatives from the National Day of Remembrance planning team will provide help with all of these tasks along the way, including sample bulletin announcements, emails and flyers; leadership conference calls; and any one-on-one assistance you may need.
