Annual Memorial Service

You are invited to join us for this cherished community tradition—a very special evening of music, candle-lighting, and personal reflections shared with family members and others who have lost loved ones.

The death of a loved one is, for most of us, one of the most difficult life events we will ever have to endure. Because grief can be so painful and overwhelming, we are sometimes scared into believing that, in order to heal, we must sever the bond we had with our loved one. Quite the opposite is true. By maintaining that special bond, by commemorating the lives of loved ones, by keeping their memory alive, we are better able to find that special place in our heart that is reserved only for them. The relationship continues—just in a different way.

We hope you will join us on Tuesday, November 29th at 6pm for this meaningful service.

Camp Celebrate Hope 2017

HospiceCare of the Piedmont will host its 22nd annual children’s grief camp, Camp Celebrate Hope.  It will be held May 6-7, 2017 at Camp Fellowship on Lake Greenwood.  Camp Celebrate Hope is open to children ages 6-14 who have experienced the death of a family member or a significant person in their lives.  The overnight camp will begin early on Saturday morning and end midday on Sunday.

 

At Camp Celebrate Hope, participants learn about their grief and are encouraged to speak openly about issues of death and their grieving experience within a group of children their own age.  Children learn new skills to help them build confidence and hope for the future.  Together they create friendships and support that allow them to identify and express their feelings in a safe and caring environment.  They also get the chance to participate in fun and organized activities.

 

There is no charge to attend this camp but space is limited.

The deadline for returning completed camp applications is April 7th, 2017.

 

For more information or to register, contact Lynn Allen at 864.227.9393.
