Hospice annual service of faith, remembrance

Nov 23, 2012

Rockland — Coastal Family Hospice Volunteers and Pen Bay Healthcare's Kno-Wal-Lin Home Care and Hospice invite the community to their annual Service of Faith and Remembrance to be held on Sunday, Dec. 2 at 3 p.m. at St. Peter’s Episcopal Church on White Street in Rockland.

This quiet hour of music, readings and candlelight is open to all who wish to remember and celebrate loved ones. Those attending will be invited to share a short reading or special memory. This interfaith gathering may be meaningful and healing during what can be a difficult season for those grieving losses.

Hospice is a philosophy of care that emphasizes quality of life in the face of life-limiting illness. Hospice providers seek to bring comfort and support to patients and their families, with the goal of creating a caring circle around members of our community when they may need it most.

Founded in 1979, Coastal Family Hospice is an independent non-profit providing volunteer support to hospice patients and their families.
