Project Rachel unites all who mourn the lost promise of a life

Project Rachel unites all who mourn the lost promise of a life | USF in the News | Scoop.it

Ellen Kelly Daley has a Masters in Counseling and works at the University of San Francisco counseling students how to prepare for success after graduation.

 

...Daley’s only son Seamus was born and died on Sept. 18, 2008. It’s a date Daley’s family, which now includes 7-year-old Patsy, marks each year in true birthday fashion, with cupcakes, a dinner out and Mass.

 

“No one should have to plan for the birth and death of their baby at the same time, but that’s what we did,” said Daley, who held Seamus’ funeral four days after his birth at St. Ignatius Church in San Francisco, her family’s parish at the time.

 

Daley will be among other women and families mourning the loss of a child at a special Mass at Holy Cross Cemetery Sept. 16. Archbishop Salvatore J. Cordileone will celebrate the Mass in the cemetery’s mausoleum at 11 a.m.
