Memorial Gathering to Honor Children Who Have Died

Each year, Cottage Health System remembers and honors the children of the community whose lives have ended.

Titled “Circle of Remembrance,” the memorial event is a gathering of parents, siblings, friends, staff, volunteers and physicians to acknowledge, in an intimate setting, the meaning, value and celebration of lives that have touched our hearts all too briefly, yet in very profound ways. The service recognizes lives lost from pre-term pregnancy through age 21.

Anyone whose life has been affected by the loss of a child is invited to attend the “Circle of Remembrance,” a memorial service for all faiths and traditions, at 4 p.m. Sept. 21 in Burtness Auditorium, on the first floor of Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital. Enter at Castillo Street. A reception will follow.

For more information, call the Cottage Health System Department of Spiritual Care at 805.569.8386.

Maria Zate is a public affairs representative for Cottage Health System.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
