Lights to Remember

Christmas lights20171117 31873 15hc6z8
December may be a difficult month for those who are grieving. An empty chair at the table during family gatherings is a poignant reminder of loss, and may activate waves of grief.

As a ritual of support for those who mourn, Lights to Remember is an annual event proudly sponsored by the Hospice Society of Camrose and District.

Each year Hospice provides individuals an opportunity to remember and recognize loved-ones who have died.

This ceremony takes place at the Hospice office in the lower-level of the Mirror Lake Center in Camrose (5415-49 ave, south side).  We join together for an evening of caroling, readings, and a candle lighting ceremony, all gathered around a lovely fire (dress warm).

The event closes as we move indoors to the for refreshments, stories, and conversation.

You are welcome to sponsor a light on our Remembrance Tree  (in front of the Bill Fowler Information Center on 48th Ave) in memory of a loved one. Use our secure server to make your gift online.
