Marie Curie ‘Lights to Remember’ Carol Service
Tue, 11 November 2014
St Albans Cathedral is hosting the Marie Curie ‘Lights to Remember’ Carol Service on Monday 8 December at 7:30pm to unite families and friends in remembering special people they have lost.
Organised by Louise Faure Walker, Marie Curie Patron for Hertfordshire, the Carol Service will be a tribute to lost loved ones, as well as a big thank you to Marie Curie nurses for their wonderful care for people at the end of their lives and an important way to raise valuable funds to support the charity's vital work.
In return for a donation, people are invited to remember a loved one by dedicating a named star that will hang on the Christmas tree in the Cathedral. The lights on the tree will be turned on by The Lord Lieutenant as part of the service. There will also be time for reflection, readings and carols in this magnificent location.
Louise Faure Walker said "The Lights to Remember service is a very beautiful and poignant way for people to remember loved ones as well as a chance to give thanks to the nurses that do such a wonderful job".
Marie Curie nurses provide specialist nursing care and emotional support to patients and their families at the end of their lives. The care they provide is totally free to people with terminal illnesses who want to be cared for at home. Often working throughout the night, they give people the chance, where possible, to spend their last days in their own home.
If you would like to dedicate a star to hang on the Christmas tree, or make a donation, please send your loved one’s name and the donation by cheque, made payable to Marie Curie Cancer Care, to: Marie Curie Fundraising Office, Sucklings Yard, Church St, Ware, Hertfordshire, SG12 9EN.
