Forgotten in life and often forgotten in death, these are the babies' children, women, and men whom the program "Remember Them" remembers in death. These are the ones who have no one to bury them. "Remember Them" is a program sponsored by the Franciscan Friars of Holy Name Province and is supported by their Office of Development. The Franciscans, through the "Remember Them" program will contribute financially to the cost of burial requested by any Holy Name Province Franciscan ministerial site.
They ask that some dignified and proper funeral ceremony either before or at the gravesite take place, that would enhance the dignity of a human life lived among us. "Remember Them" is a non-denominational program which will assist in the burial of anyone regardless of age, ethnicity, lifestyle, or spiritual or non-spiritual beliefs. "Remember Them" needs your financial assistance and support
in order to carry out this corporal work of mercy - burying the forgotten dead. "Remember Them" believes that even though these babies, children women and men may have been forgotten in life, the Franciscans will remember them in death.
