Sharing of the Lights

Event Date: 
Sunday, November 26, 2017

Join us on Sunday, November 26, 2017 from 4:30-5:30pm at Finnerty Gardens for an afternoon of reflection and remembrance.

The holiday season can be a difficult time of year for those who have lost a loved one. The stores and streets are adorned with lights and music, but in your heart there may be a natural sadness that comes with loss.

Sharing of the Lights offers a unique opportunity to come together to remember and honour those you love. Through candlelight and company, space and sound we will transform the grief and loneliness that may arise at this time of year into companionship and community; an honouring of the lives that have been shared with us.

Everyone is welcome to attend including family, friends, supporters, and caregivers who have offered so much of their lives and hearts to those who have died. This is a free event that includes an indoor and outdoor component. You are not required to prepare or bring anything to the event (if your loved one was cared for on the unit at Victoria Hospice, and you have a stone from the alcove, please do bring it.  More stones will be available at the event).

Quality end-of-life care for all: Our mission is to enhance the quality of life for those facing advancing illness, death and bereavement through skilled and compassionate care, education, research and advocacy.
