Hospice ready to Light-Up in memory in Duncan

Cowichan Hospice and Cowichan District Hospital’s Annual Christmas Light-Up in memory of loved ones is scheduled for Wednesday, Dec. 7

Cowichan Hospice and Cowichan District Hospital’s Annual Christmas Light-Up in memory of loved ones is scheduled for Wednesday, Dec. 7 this year. Each year, many people gather together at the hospital entrance to take part in this special ceremony. Christmas music starts in the lobby at 5:30 with the ceremony outdoors by the Christmas trees starting at 6 p.m.

“To be present as so many of us remember loved ones who have died, is always a profound and yet comforting experience at this most poignant of seasons,” says Gretchen Hartley from Cowichan Hospice.

The ceremony includes music, words of comfort, and lighting bulbs on the trees in front of the hospital. Everyone will have the opportunity to turn on one of the tree lights in memory of a loved one. Following the lighting ceremony, Cowichan Hospice volunteers will serve refreshments in the hospital cafeteria.
