Event Information

Chichester Cathedral to host the seventh ‘Saying Goodbye’ service of remembrance out of twenty-eight international services in 2024.

Since 2012, global services of remembrance for families, couples and individuals affected by the loss of a baby, whether that be during pregnancy, at birth or in infancy have been held at Cathedrals, Minsters and Abbeys across the UK and beyond. The ‘Saying Goodbye’ services were launched by the Mariposa Trust to provide support to the 30,000,000 individuals, couples and families affected by baby loss each year globally, and they have been vital in helping countless tens of thousands of bereaved families acknowledge and remember the baby or babies that they have lost.

The ‘Saying Goodbye’ services are uplifting and moving events filled with music, poems, acts of remembrance and more. Created more than a decade ago by leading grief expert, author, TV host and campaigner Zoe Clark-Coates MBE and her husband Andy, following their devastating personal journey of five losses, the services provide space and time for families to be able to grieve. They are free to attend and are open to people of any faith or no faith and to those who have lost recently or decades ago. Today the charity’s six divisions provide support to over 50,000 people each week from around the world.
