Red Bird Ministries, a national nonprofit organization dedicated to supporting families grieving the loss of a child, is launching a new app and online grief support community for bereaved parents. The app will provide immediate access to resources and support for parents who have experienced the loss of a child from pregnancy through adulthood.
The app is free for download beginning Monday, September 5, the feast day of St. Teresa of Calcutta, for iOS and Android on the App Store and Google Play Stores. It's a place to help parents understand grief, navigate through it, and take practical measures to begin the healing process, no matter the stage of grief. It also provides resources for family members and parochial leaders who desire to serve these families in a supportive faith-based platform. The app is the first of its kind, made possible by the OSV Innovation Challenge grant from Our Sunday Visitor.
Red Bird Ministries’ mission is to provide Catholic grief support programs and training to provide practical, compassionate resources for families of child loss. Visit their website or call 337.223.2019 for further information.
