to host memorial service
St. Mary’s Hospital will once again host a Memorial Service on Saturday, December 1 from 1:30 to 2:30 p.m. in the Clinic Waiting Room to honor those in our community who have died during the past year.
Family members and the public are invited to attend. Participants may write the name of a loved one on the white ornament provided by the hospital. The ornaments will hang throughout the holiday season on the Memorial Tree.
A memorial book listing the community members who have died during the year will also be on display. Participants are welcome to bring a photo of their loved one.
“When we have lost someone we love, the holidays can be a time of sadness, knowing that we will miss our departed friends and family even more,” said Sr. Corinne Forsman, SMHC Mission Services. “But it is also a time to celebrate the happiness they brought to us and to honor their memories. I welcome people to join us in the Memorial service. It is a gentle way of sharing.”
