Good Samaritan Hospice to Hold Memorial Services in Cabot, Freedom

February 28, 2012

However we choose to honor the memory of loved ones we've lost, it will be a blessing. As people of Christ, one way we can honor together is to unite in a special time of worship, honoring not only the memory of our loved ones, but also the ONE who purchased and won us to be HIS now and forever. Rev. 5:9

For this reason, Good Samaritan Hospice, a mission of Concordia Lutheran Ministries, has offered memorial services in the past and will again this year. (An excerpt from Concordia Chaplain Paul Rist's upcoming article in Faith in Caring magazine)

The memorial services are held in memory of those who spent their final days at either its Wexford or Cabot inpatient hospice facilities or with Good Samaritan Hospice home care.

The first service will be held at 3 p.m. on Sunday, April 22 at St. Luke Lutheran Church in Cabot. The second service will be at 3 p.m. on Sunday, April 29 at Prince of Peace Lutheran Church in Freedom. Concordia Chaplain Rev. Paul Rist will conduct the services. The services last year drew over 250 people.

The memorial services are open to anyone dealing with grief, even if they did not have a loved one in Good Samaritan Hospice care. The services will be a time to pray and give thanks to celebrate the lives of those no longer with us, look to God and within, and begin the healing process. It will also be a time to understand that the journey through grief is different for every person.

Registration is recommended. To register or receive more information, call 1.800.720.2557, visit Good Samaritan Hospice on the Web or e-mail us here.
