This gathering provides parents with interaction with other parents who have gone through or are going through similar situations.


Paracletia, Inc.

Paracletia, Inc. was created to provide confidential, compassionate pastoral care that can be missing in today's society. Those who have experienced loss often feel isolated, alone, devalued and unimportant to God. The thought that "God does not care for me" is seldom voiced, but often affects the individual's interpersonal relationships at home and at work.

Azalea Gardens provides anyone who has experienced the grief of a lost pregnancy, a safe, private, comforting place to remember the baby they cannot hold.

Meetings are confidential, call or contact for meeting times.  Azalea Gardens can be visited anytime during daytime hours.
