Several Hospice sponsored events on horizon

(Garden City, Kas.) - Christmas will soon be upon us and for those that have recently lost a loved one, this time of year may be difficult. Hospice of St. Catherine Hospital will host two events that encourage you to remember loved ones that have passed; the Hospice Tree of Life and the Memorial Wreath lighting.

The blessing and dedication service for the Tree of Life will be held in the south lobby of St. Catherine Hospital, 401 E. Spruce, on Monday, December 1st at 2:30 p.m.

The Hospice Tree of Life allows you to honor those that have passed with a special ornament this Christmas. For a suggested $10 donation, your loved one will be remembered with an ornament placed on the Tree of Life and displayed through the holiday season. Proceeds go to the 2015 Comfort Zone Family Retreat.

The Memorial Wreath Lighting Ceremony is a meaningful celebration held under the stars paying tribute to all hospice patients who have died this year. This celebration of life will also be held on Monday, December 1st at 6:30 pm in the Hospice Memorial Garden, 602 N. 6th St.

To reserve an ornament or for further information, please call Gina Cash at (620) 272-2519.
