Many families - including Knights - have been affected by a stillborn or miscarriage. It is a difficult, sorrowful, and often traumatic time for the parents and is only compounded by having to make for the funeral arrangements, including the purchase of a small casket.
Knights in our Network have also suffered in these circumstances and were
inspired to act to help lessen the burden on other families who experience a
stillborn or miscarriage.
reading a January 2019 Knights of Columbus online article, several Knights of the
Traditional Knights Latin Mass Network decided to develop a manual on how
Knights or others (with little woodworking experience) can build small and
dignified caskets and provide them free of charge to parents who recently suffered
from a stillborn birth or miscarriage.
How to Build a Casket for a Stillborn or Miscarried Baby
Challenge: We also challenge Brother Knights to use the manual and try to build one.
