Nurturing Hope: A Heartfelt Tribute to Lily of the Valley Catholic Ministry

Dear Friends,

I wanted to express my profound gratitude for the incredible support we’ve received from our community, especially during the challenging moments in Philip’s journey. While various organizations touched our lives briefly, one ministry stood by us through every twist and turn: Lily of the Valley Catholic Ministry.

From the moment of Philip’s diagnosis to his birth, hospital stay, and eventually his passing, Lily of the Valley provided unwavering support. They walked with us through grief and continue to be a source of strength as we navigate the delicate path of pregnancy after loss.

I know that many of you, too, have found solace and companionship in the embrace of Lily of the Valley. On this Giving Tuesday, I invite you to join me in supporting this beautiful ministry that has touched our lives so profoundly. Your generosity will undoubtedly contribute to its continued growth and the positive impact it has on countless others. You can make a difference by visiting

Reflecting on the past year, I’m reminded of the precious floral rosary that LOTV gifted us for Philip’s casket exactly one year ago today. It’s a tangible symbol of the love and compassion this ministry extends to families like ours. This rosary, made possible by the generosity of our community, holds a place of honor in our hearts and home.

Thank you all for being pillars of strength and compassion. Your support has touched our lives in ways words cannot express. Let’s come together once again to ensure Lily of the Valley can continue its invaluable work.

With heartfelt thanks and love,

Catherine Milner
