Time for remembering
Each year, all those who have lost a loved one are invited, by letter, to attend a special memorial service to remember the life of their loved one and give thanks. The service is currently held in Prescot Parish Church.
During the service each name is read out and readings and hymns are sung with an Act of Remembering as the key moment in the service. Everyone present is invited to light a candle in memory of their love one.
Members of the Hospice team attend the service and are available after the service, should you want to talk. Refreshments are available beforehand.
Light up a Life service
The Hospice also holds an annual Light up a Life service in December in three different locations – Prescot Parish Church, Holy Spirit Church, Dovecot and St Mary’s RC Church in Lowe House, St Helens.
This is a celebration of the lives of loved ones who have died and for the lives of those we love who are close to us. You can, if you wish, purchase a ‘light’ and put the name of your loved one in the ‘Book of honour’ which is on display at each service and then afterwards in the Hospice Chapel.
