The restlessness and stress of daily life too often keeps us from experiencing the peace which The Lord offers us. This peace can be found through an intimate relationship with Jesus in adoration before the Blessed Sacrament. We are fortunate to have this opportunity at Our Lady of the Atonement in the Sacred Heart Chapel where the Blessed Sacrament is exposed every weekend beginning each Friday at 7:45 AM and ending on Sunday at 6:15 AM.

American Heritage Girls (AHG) was founded by a group of parents wanting a faith-based, scout-type character development program for their daughters in 1995. The AHG Program is dedicated to the mission of building women of integrity through service to God, family, community and country. AHG girls across the nation and the globe participate in badge programs, service projects, leadership opportunities, and outdoor experiences, all with an emphasis on Christian values and family involvement.
There are devoted volunteer members across the country helping girls to grow in their faith, cultivate a heart for service, enjoy the great outdoors, and have more fun than they can imagine!

Donations may be tax deductible. Please contact us by email at the time of the donation if you would like to have us send you a letter of acknowledgement for your tax records.
Who we are:
God’s Comfort in Loss is a ministry for parents who have miscarried a baby. The group was created in 2021 by ladies of Our Lady of the Atonement Catholic Church in San Antonio, Texas. Our ministry team is comprised of mothers who have had miscarriages, and our hope is to provide grieving parents comfort after the loss of their child. Our patron saint is Saint Philomena.
How we can help:
We deliver care boxes to parents, with particular emphasis on mothers, who have experienced a miscarriage. If your family has experienced a miscarriage or if you know of someone who has experienced a miscarriage, please let us know so we can provide a care box. The care box includes items that we hope will provide comfort (books, candles, crosses, holy water, diaries, etc.) to the grieving parents. Up to this date, we have distributed dozens of care boxes.
We can provide therapist contacts, as well as contact information for organizations that help parents with miscarriages.
We are also available to talk to the mother who has lost her baby (we are not therapists; we are mothers who have had miscarriages in the past).
Our pastor, Father Lewis, has approved a monthly mass for the intention of this ministry starting November 2021. Additionally, our ministry team will keep you and your babies in our personal prayer intentions.
“Thank you so much! I cannot tell you how much that care package meant…it arrived on the perfect day and it was an overwhelming healing experience to open it. Everything in there was so thoughtfully done and generously included. Thank you. I am most grateful for your help each and prayers. It has been such a terrible loss. I have had some really sad days. But overall, I’m really consoled knowing that in God’s will is our peace.”
-Letter from mother who miscarried
“I want to write in and express my sincere gratitude in receiving the care package from Marcela, Renee, and Claire today. I was so touched by the gesture – it means the world to have others reach out and share the emotional load. Thank you so much, you’re doing incredible, meaningful things for people!”
