Dear Infants Remembered In Silence Community;

Due to the spread of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) we at IRIS find ourselves responding to unusual challenges that none of us have faced before. It is important to us, as a non-profit organization that cares for grieving parents, to keep everyone’s safety in mind especially those who are grieving and may be vulnerable to this virus. 

In keeping with the guideline for the State of Minnesota, Infants Remembered In Silence will be closing our office from March 27 - April 10 and abiding by the Govenors order to "Stay at Home".  

We will still be answering phone messages and providing services to parents to the best of our ability. Please contact the IRIS Office at (507) 334-4748 or email: 

Until Further Notice:

  1. IRIS Support Group Meetings are Canceled.
  2. The Mothers Day Brunch is on Hold. 
  3. Volunteers will not be allowed.
  4. All Event Planning Meetings are Canceled. 
  5. All Personal Appearances are Canceled.

These steps are being taken to Protect Your Health, the health of all grieving parents. 

IRIS will continue to monitor the situation based on current Minnesota Department of Health recommendations and the CDC guidelines.

MN Department of Health:


All of us at IRIS know and understand that grief does not take a break regardless of world events. We also know that being at home for long periods of time is very difficult.  We want you to know that we are here for you, and will continue to be - you are Never alone! IRIS is simply changing how we are able to help for a few weeks.

This is an unusual situation and we are doing our best to make decisions with the information we are being provided.

Thank You for your understanding.
